Biography: Dr Meaker is Clive Meaker, 28. 17/01/1980. shoe size: 8 and a half.

Bristol’s very own Mark Ronson uses soul, jazz and reggae influences to produce the Meaker sound. A sound of sublime vocals and ruff-cut bass licks that feels as at home on commercial radio, as it does at underground clubs.

Dr Meaker's debut album 'A Lesson From The Speaker' has been 3 years in the making and features collaborations with vocalist Yolanda Quartey who's currently cutting records with Massive Attack. Meaker’s master blending sees him sampling The Korgis Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime on the track Need Love. This is just one of the great surprises in store as you journey through the album.

If the success of the soft release of the debut single Moving And Grooving is anything to go by, the recent single Bad Boy Calling, with its cheeky reggae beat, is sure to get people head-bopping as they’re waiting for the bus. Bad Boy Calling is available in seven different mixes from the likes of Rob Smith, , False Flag and more.
