Stewart Copeland

Contest : DubXanne - The Police In Dub (re synchronised by Rob Smith) Now on CD

 

DubXanne The Police In DubWarning : Contest !
In the late seventies, The Police were the biggest band in Britain; by the early eighties they ruled the globe as a three-headed, bleached-blond monster of rock.

Surfing a new wave sound which valued intellectual cool and lightly sprinkled ethnic influences over the discredited rock’n’roll bluster of old. The first post-punk supergroup.

A constructive arrogance and a very lucky streak…!!!

At the end of 1977, over the Christmas period, Stewart Copeland played Sting some of his reggae records. When Summers returned to Britain from his  vacation in America, he found his band mates newly inspired by Jamaican sounds.  The rest we all know is history… !

 

23 years later… and everybody knows what’s going on with The Police: they’ve reformed and went back out on tour. Another key event – also 23 years later -  is the release of a project which has been simmering for quite some time now: The Police in Dub. Due for release in 2008 on Echo Beach

After exhaustive scrutiny of the Police back catalogue at EMI Music Publishing (which controls and manages the rights for Sting’s songs) and lengthy negotiations with Sting’s management team, final consent for the project was granted in March 2008. Now the world can sit back and look forward to dub versions of the biggest tunes by The Police :

Another 6 years later Rob Smith also know as RSD or better known as a producer from Bristol (he is a synonymous with progressive modern dancefloor-oriented reggae in all shapes and facets : dubstep, jungle dub, roots dub and drum´n`bass) who produced of the first Massive Attack EP, early Neneh Cherry material and also and his own house band, Smith & Mighty). He also remixed tons of pop tracks like M People, Beats International, Fine Young Canibals etc. Rob Smith is renowned for imaginative production and made his master of re-synchronsation on The Police in Dub material. He focused in a very sensitive way to rework, restyle and synchronize the original material and we are really proud to release this album on Echo Beach.

Stewart Copeland and WholeWorldBand app

 

Stewart Copeland by Wally SkalijDrummer and founding Police member Stewart Copeland is ready for a jam session in his Brentwood home studio, which he calls the Sacred Grove.

Music giants such as Ben Harper, Snoop Dogg and Primus have all dropped by to improvise with Copeland, who keeps his lair equipped with obscure musical instruments and assorted tribal headgear on the walls. And, most important, microphones and video cameras are set up around the studio to capture spontaneous music-making.

Now Copeland wants fans to jam with him — through the Internet.

The percussionist and composer recently sat down to record a simple drum track, something Tommy Ramone might have cranked out in a garage in the 1970s. He then turned it over to fans. Through an iPhone and iPad app called WholeWorldBand, amateur musicians piled on their own vocals and bass lines and wah-wah electric guitar solos to turn Copeland's spare original into full-blown rock songs.

The Web has made it possible for people who play music as a hobby to write and record music — even collaborate with a rock legend — and share the creations through sites such as YouTube. It's far removed from the days when Copeland, Sting and Andy Summers were recording classics such as "Roxanne" and "Message In a Bottle."

And that's a good thing for creativity, Copeland said.

"The talent pool has widened," Copeland said. "Back when I was a kid, you couldn't make an album without being surrounded by professionals and studio equipment you can't afford. You couldn't do it yourself. You had to go to the man."

Stewart Copeland & Jon Kimura Parker : Off the score

 

stewart copeland & jon kimura parker
“Mr. Copeland was clearly having a blast, and the audience 
shared in the fun, giving the enthusiastic performance 
the night’s loudest ovation.” The New York Times
“Parker single-handedly advanced global warming with a 
solo-piano rendition of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring.” 
Toronto Star


Stewart Copeland, the artist who innovated the world of rock drumming, joins forces with pianist Jon Kimura Parker in a new chamber music program called “Off the Score!”. This project will feature Copeland’s engaging compositions as well as interesting classical works to suit this unique ensemble. In “Off the Score” Stewart and Jackie will address the intersection of the notes on the page that are ‘the bible’ in the classical world, with the improvisational instincts of the rock and jazz musician. It is the rare classical musician that can improvise, as it is the rare rock musician who reads music. In this project, all of these musicians can do both! This is chamber music for a new generation who will be in awe of Parker’s incredible virtuosity and Copeland’s instantly recognizable drumming. Instrumentation includes piano, violin, double-bass and drums/percussion as well as Judd­Miller, the extraordinary proponent of the EVI(Electronic Valve Instrument), who will use the EVI to add a collage of brass, wind and electronic sounds. Both Jon Kimura Parker and Stewart Copeland are witty and articulate artists who are eager to share their fresh ideas as they move beyond the notes on the page and perform an evening of music that will be unlike any other.. This will be an evening of cutting edge chamber music that is propulsive, engaging, interesting and fun!

Tour dates :

Stanley Clarke's new album "Up" is featuring his old friend Stewart Copeland


Stanley Clarke Up Stewart CopelandStanley Clarke's new album "Up" is featuring his old friend Stewart Copeland.
The drummer performed on the title track.

The title track “UP,” is the essence of the album’s sensibilities. “Drummer Stewart Copeland was on my mind with this song,” says Clarke. “His vibe is one of the most upbeat and positive that I know, and that consciousness carries throughout the song.” The bassist also pays homage to George Duke with “Brazilian Love Affair – Dedicated To George Duke,” one of his favorite compositions. A tremendous arrangement augmented by robust rhythms and a vigorous samba predominate the song.

The album is due to release on september 30.
