Dr Meaker – Right Back feat. Sian Evans (single) (V Recordings)
Hailing from Bristol, a spiritual home of live drum & bass, Dr Meaker return with a brand new single Right Back and have enlisted the vocal talents of Sian Evans (vocalist for Kosheen and vocalist on DJ Fresh’s Louder) thus guaranteeing this tune as a summertime smash.
It comes as no surprise, that spins and support are already heavy in clubland and on BBC Radio, with Doc Scott, Ray Keith, Clarky, Mistajam, Crissy Criss, Annie Mac, Sarah Jane Crawford, DJ Target, Huw Stephens, Adele Roberts, Phil Taggart and Alice Levine already on board.
Attracting attention from the legendary selector and V Recordings boss Bryan Gee, it wasn’t long before Dr Meaker teamed up with the label for two killer slices of drum and bass: Music In The Night and Fighter. How does Dr Meaker top those two monstrous tunes? Take a listen to Right Back and find out.
Right Back has a Chase and Status-like appeal with its commercial appeal and combination of pop sensibilities with drum n’ bass grooves (think Count On Me). However, Right Back is smoother and less edgy than the work of the aforementioned duo.
On the new single, Dr Meaker continues to deliver old-school drum n’ bass flavours, harkening back to the formative years of V Recordings. The old-school vibes are furthered courtesy of the song’s classy sample of Dynasty’s Adventures in the Land of Music.
In fact, all-in-all, Right Back already plays like a well-worn classic.
Euphoric and enthralling, Right Back will be released as a single next month. Visit the Dr Meaker website for more information.
