FEED: SCRIPT: xfa TOP PRODUCER SPINS THE DISCS AT IBIZA STORY: DAVID MORALES LOCATION: IBIZA DATE: AUGUST 1999 Long gone are the days when being a successful musician meant you actually had to play a musical instrument or possess a reasonable singing voice. With the advent of house music, a whole new breed of DJs have forged a name for themselves by remixing tracks and launching them at clubs throughout Europe and America. If the music gets people dancing, chances are it will become a hit on the airwaves several months later. The summer season on the tiny balearic island of Ibiza has proved over the past decade to be the best testing ground for future hits and the favoured destination for celeb DJ's, record producers, supermodels and Europe's glitterati in general. This summer one of the many hot DJ's playing at Ibiza was DAVID MORALES. As a DJ, remixer, producer and co-owner of DEF MIX PRODUCTIONS,(one of the world's most successful dance music production companies), Morales has made a mark all of his own. Aside from spinning records at major clubs around the world, his productions skills have kept him in great demand with top recording artists such as MARIAH CAREY, MICHAEL JACKSON, SEAL, CE-CE PENISTON, JANET JACKSON, TINA TURNER, JAMIROQUAI, WHITNEY HOUSTON, and THE SPICE GIRLS (he wrote and produced their massive hit \"Spice Up Your Life\") to name but a few. Morales' most recent projects include producing the PET SHOP BOYS' latest album \"Nightlife\" which features their current single, \"I Don't Know What You Want But I Can't Give It Anymore\". In 1996, he was nominated for a Grammy Award for producing MARIAH CAREY'S \"Fantasy\", followed by a second Grammy nomination in '97 for Best Remixer. In 1998, Morales finally received the coveted award for \"Remixer of the Year\". He has also remixed tracks for countless artists from MADONNA (\"Deeper and Deeper\"), ARETHA FRANKLIN, ETERNAL, BJORK and MAXI PRIEST. In 1997, David and his partner JUDY WEINSTEIN created \"Definity Records\", and hit the chart jackpot with their first release on the label entitled \"The Face -Needin' U\" which soared to Number 1 on the Billboard Dance Chart and enjoyed great success in Europe with a number 8 position on the UK pop chart. The video for The Face topped the MTV Europe Dance Chart at number one. A native of Brooklyn, New York, Morales first discovered his powers as a hit-maker back in 1987 when he started working as a DJ for a new club named \"Red Zone\". His time there, coupled with a trip to the UK, resulted in a series of mixes called \"The Red Zone Mixes\" and launched his name as a legend in the underground. In 1991 Morales started work on his own record, David Morales and the Bad Yard Club \"The Program\", which was released on Mercury Records in '93. The single, \"In De Ghetto\" featuring CRYSTAL WATERS went to the top of the UK Record Mirror Chart. The multi-talented Morales has been a guest DJ on MTV's \"The Grind\" as well as mixing his own Saturday night program called \"Morales at Midnight\" on the New York radio station, WKTU. Nowadays though, he is focusing mainly on his own writing and producing.

SOT Jorell: "Look at me I'm gorgeous. There are eight females and eight males, you have got the eight males trying to get the eight females. I am not a competitive type of person, I am not going to compete to lie down with anybody. If you like me you like me, if I like you I like you, and we take it from there. As far as me trying to play gameson all the females here, that is not my style." 5. film clip 'The Real Cancun' 6. SOT Casey: "I really have no game. I like to make eye contact first, and I will just smile, and I will shake my head back hoping to just get that attention and stuff. I love for girls to approach me. I like girls that have attitude, the type of girl that I would like to get married to...I want her to be all sweet and innocent. I pray to God that a girl that I would marry one day hasn't had sex with all these different people." 7. film clip 'The Real Cancun' 8.

SOT Roxanne: "Oh come on...cliche." 13. film clip 'The Real Cancun' 'THE REAL CANCUN': REALITY TV HITS THE BIG SCREEN New Line Cinema joins forces with Bunim/Murray Productions, the producers of the long-running MTV series, 'The Real World' to bring the popular trend of reality tv to the big screen for the first time. The Real Cancun follows a group of 16 youngsters, picked from open auditions at colleges across America, who are sent on the ultimate Spring Break vacation in Cancun, Mexico. The group live together in a beachfront apartment for eight fun-filled days in the Caribbean, whilst cameras capture their every move, documentary style, with a combination of hand-held and strategically located cameras and a 100-person crew that included teams of cameramen, soundmen, story coordinators, film editors, audio experts and helicopter pilots. 10 days' worth of unscripted footage was shot and edited down to about 90 minutes. The results leave little to the imagination, with scenes of drunken debauchery, sex, nudity, bumping, grinding, wet T-shirt contests and general "hooking up" amongst the cast as they enjoy a week of partying and drinking in the sunshine. Cast member Jeremy - like his colleagues, only known on a first-name basis - is caught in the act with various young women throughout the new reality movie. He says that "I don't have to be at the centre of attention, but I just like to be involved in stuff, and I like people to know who I am. I think girls look right at me and see a guy who has style, that is good looking, that has spikey hair, muscles and a tan and they are just like ahh, and that is pretty much my game." Raunchy twins Roxanne and Nicole explain that it wasn't long before they forgot the cameras were there. As Roxanne recalls, "I noticed them for five minutes and after that we were drinking with our friends and went to a club and I had no idea they were even there, in all honestly I didn't notice them at all." The film, which cost a minimal $7.5 million (US dollars) to make, is on general release in the US. CLEARANCE DETAILS The Real Cancun New Line Cinema 1 310 854 5811 44 (0) 20 7440 1040

Entertainment Europe: No Doubt Pt 1 - No Doubt reveal all about their new single 'Hey Baby'
TAPE: EF02/0092 IN_TIME: 14:27:05 DURATION: 5:48 SOURCES: APTN/Universal Music RESTRICTIONS: music video/performance rights must be cleared DATELINE: January 2002, London SHOTLIST 1. Video clip 'Hey Baby' 2. SOT Gwen Stefani (on musical inspiration for single): "Musically it came from the whole dance hall vibe. We were really getting into dance hall in the last year and a half. Tony is actually the one who kept playing these tracks ever night after the shows - we had these big dance hall parties right? That's kind of where the musical inspiration came from." 3. Video clip 'Hey Baby' 4. SOT Gwen Stefani (on single's lyrics): "I guess lyrically I just always thought it was really interesting that I was in this band with all these guys for fifteen years. I have like front row centre viewpoint on what it's like to be in a rock band, but I'm a girl so I can just see what goes on backstage. I kinda see it all and I thought that maybe I should share that with people a little bit. But yeah, also just these parties that we were having all the time and everyone coming back. These girls coming back, and it was just a very interesting situation that goes on back there and how the girls really want to get with the guys and how they really don't know how to act around me cause they can't really seduce me or like want to go and make out with me or anything so it's just a kinda song about that." 5. Video clip 'Hey Baby' 6. SOT Tom Dumont, guitarist (on video): "The video was awesome. I have to tell you, like a week before we did the video they sent over a book we were planning the video. And this book, full of pictures of hot chicks - 'Ok, which chicks do you want in the video?' 'That one, that one'. Oh, that was kind of fun to hire hot chicks you know, cause we wanted them to be dancing and stuff...which they were." 7. SOT Gwen Stefani: "Grinding on you." 8. SOT Tom Dumont, guitarist: "Grinding? No, they weren't grinding us - well, a little bit." 9. Video clip 'I'm Just A Girl' 10. SOT Tom Dumont, guitarist (on difference in style from old albums): "Stylistically, the only real difference between this and the other records is there's less guitar and more keyboard - that's one difference. And a little bit more like drum machine and a little less real drums, but there's still real drums and guitars all over it. But that's I think honestly it, just more keyboards but all of a sudden it sounds different. The songs are the kind of the same songs we've always done." 9. Cutaway Tom Dumont, guitarist 10. SOT Gwen Stefani (on difference in style from old albums): "We wrote differently though. We wrote differently and it was a fresh way to write because normally we would write on acoustic guitar and then we would develop a song into whatever song it's going to be. But this time, with the help of the computer, we were able to like program a drum beat, just to get the vibe of where you want it to be, like what kind of beat you want it to be, and then you write the chords on top of that." 11. Video clip 'Hey Baby' 12. SOT Tom Dumont, guitarist (on new approach to making album): "We took on like a different approach this year and it was really easy and spontaneous and fun. And we would just get together every day, have a a little like home studio thing, and we'd get together every day and write a track, or try to write a track. Me and Tony would be sitting on the drum machine and the keyboards and we'd come up with the stuff and once we'd got something going...and Gwen definitely took part as well - you were doing keyboard parts and all that." 13. SOT Gwen Stefani: "Yeah, I did some string lines and some keyboard parts." 14. SOT Tom Dumont, guitarist: "Gwen's good with those melodies and stuff. And then she'd sit on the couch and write words." 15. Video clip 'Hey Baby' 16. SOT Gwen Stefani (lack of pressure this time): "I mean, we really had a blast. I was sad when the record was finished cause for us, to record a record and put it out in less than a year, is pretty much a miracle. We need like an award or something, some kind of prize for doing it cause it usually takes...'Tragic Kingdom' took 3 years, 'Return of Saturn' took two years so... 17. SOT Tom Dumont, guitarist: "3, 2, 1." 18. SOT Gwen: "Yeah, exactly, in 1 year." 19. SOT Tom Dumont, guitarist: "We're getting better." 20. SOT Gwen Stefani: "It was a lot different this time though, it was just so much fun. There was no pressure, we were totally free, we weren't proving anything to ourselves any more - we didn't have anything to prove, we didn't have anything to lose - we were just doing it and enjoying the process of it." 21. Video clip 'Hey Baby' GWEN STEFANI SHARES WORLD OF GROUPIES WITH WORLD No Doubt singer GWEN STEFANI is determined to share her experience of groupies with the world, in the band's new single 'Hey Baby'. But before the boys get too excited, she's not admitting to indulging any female fans herself, just recording their antics with her male band members. She explains: "I have like front row centre viewpoint on what it's like to be in a rock band, but I'm a girl so I can just see what goes on backstage. I kinda see it all and I thought that maybe I should share that with people a little bit. But yeah, also just these parties that we were having all the time and everyone coming back. These girls coming back, and it was just a very interesting situation that goes on back there and how the girls really want to get with the guys and how they really don't know how to act around me cause they can't really seduce me or like want to go and make out with me or anything so it's just a kinda song about that." Guitarist Tom Dumont had no trouble making the video to fit the song's theme: "The video was awesome. I have to tell you, like a week before we did the video they sent over a book we were planning the video. And this book, full of pictures of hot chicks - 'Ok, which chicks do you want in the video?' 'That one, that one'. Oh, that was kind of fun to hire hot chicks you know, cause we wanted them to be dancing and stuff...which they were." "Rock Steady" is their first album since 'Return of Saturn' in 2000. Out since late last year, it is just 40,000 copies short of going platinum, but it is difficult not to notice how different the new single, with its bump and grind "dance hall" feel is to much of their earlier, punk inspired work. So is this a new No Doubt? Tom Dumont thinks not: "Stylistically, the only real difference between this and the other records is there's less guitar and more keyboard - that's one difference. And a little bit more like drum machine and a little less real drums, but there's still real drums and guitars all over it. But that's I think honestly it, just more keyboards but all of a sudden it sounds different. The songs are the kind of the same songs we've always done." But Gwen will admit the band have recently discovered the joys of the drum machine. She says, "We wrote differently and it was a fresh way to write because normally we would write on acoustic guitar and then we would develop a song into whatever song it's going to be. But this time, with the help of the computer, we were able to like program a drum beat, just to get the vibe of where you want it to be, like what kind of beat you want it to be, and then you write the chords on top of that." No Doubt was formed in 1987 and played their Madness influenced Ska on party circuit around Anaheim until they were signed by Interscope Records in 1991. Their first release an odd fusion of '80s pop and ska flopped and Interscope refused to support any more of their albums until 1995, when they released 'Tragic Kingdom', which served as testament to Stefani's break-up with No Doubt Bassist Tony Kanal. Constant touring and MTV's playing of 'Just a Girl' and 'Spiderwebs' helped the album achieve top 10 success. And when the album's third single, 'Don't Speak', became a massive hit around the world - their could be no doubt that No Doubt had arrived. And they think they're also improving musically - their last few albums involved long hard slogs in the studio, but 'Rock Steady' was comparatively easy. Says Gwen: "We really had a blast. I was sad when the record was finished cause for us, to record a record and put it out in less than a year, is pretty much a miracle. We need like an award or something, some kind of prize for doing it cause it usually takes...'Tragic Kingdom' took 3 years, 'Return of Saturn' took two years so..." Could it be that being massively successful had something to do with it: "There was no pressure, we were totally free, we weren't proving anything to ourselves any more - we didn't have anything to prove, we didn't have anything to lose - we were just doing it and enjoying the process of it." So nothing to do with Gwen being loved up thanks to new fiancee Gavin Rossdale, otherwise known as the Bush frontman. Gavin, 34, proposed on New Year's morning (1JAN02) at his London home and 32-year-old Stefani happily accepted. It will be the first marriage for both singers, and is scheduled to take place in 2002, although not before Gwen and the band have finished their North American 'Rock Steady' tour. The tour kicks off Feb. 26 at the Long Beach Arena in California, when the band joins Weezer and The Offspring for a benefit as part of the Concerts For Artists Rights -- a series of shows being organized to raise money for an artists' rights lobby group. The tour proper stars March 14 in Puerto Rico, before heading to Venezuela and then returning to North America.

Entertainment Asia/Europe: No Doubt Part two - No Doubt's Gwen Stefani talks about their new sound
TAPE: EF02/0096 IN_TIME: 06:58:44 / 14:33:02 DURATION: 4:16 SOURCES: APTN/Universal Music RESTRICTIONS: music video/performance rights must be cleared DATELINE: January 2002, London SHOTLIST 1. Video clip - 'Hey Baby', No Doubt 2. SOT Gwen Stefani (on recording part of album in Jamaica) - "We were really into this whole dance hall flavour and Tony had the idea 'let's go to Jamaica, I bet we could go to Jamaica and the record company would pay for it, we'll hook up with Sly and Robbie, these legendary producers' and he knew some guys down there because he had gone about a year and half ago and came back really inspired and he hooked it all up and the next thing that you know we are there." 3. Video clip - 'Hey Baby' 4. SOT Gwen Stefani - "That was another thing that we said that if there was any talented amazing people that wanted to work with us that we would hang out with them and see if any of their talent would rub off on us." 5. Video clip - '1999', Prince 6. SOT Gwen Stefani (on working with Prince) - "Prince was amazing, just getting the call to go and sing on his record and then in return he was going to do a song with us, one of our songs and Tom and I and Tony wrote this song called the waiting room and gave the demo to Prince and he flew us all out to Paisley Park and he had re-worked the whole song and recorded this incredible version of it." 7. Video clip - 'Let Me Blow Ya Mind', Gwen Stefani and Eve 8. SOT Gwen Stefani (on influence of duet with Eve) - "I think hip hop in the last three years has been really cool. Out of all the music, Rock, Pop, Hip Hop, all that stuff, I think that Hip Hop really inspired us because those tracks are the most creative tracks that were coming out in the last few years." 9. Video clip - 'Let Me Blow Ya Mind', Gwen Stefani and Eve 10. SOT Gwen Stefani (on influence of hip hop) - "The way that was influencing us is basically by the song structure of a hip hop songs where you have a consistent beat which is something that No Doubt has a real hard time doing. We always like to play a million beats and have a hundred chords and ten bridges and I think with simplifying our sound a little bit more, it's something that we were always trying to do. We tried to do it on our last record and it didn't happen, this record we really think we did it and I think that Hip Hop music does that." 11. Video clip - 'Hey Baby', No Doubt 12. SOT Gwen Stefani (on motivations) - "We try to write music and figure out what kind of music our fans want us to write, that to me would be the biggest kind of sell out thing to do. Like, what do you think our fans will buy Tom? First of all we are not talented enough to do that, we don't have the skills to write a calculated song, second of all that would be backwards. We are in the band for ourselves, we are really selfish. We do it for us and then we share it with you." 13. Video clip - 'Hey Baby', No Doubt NO DOUBT EXPAND MUSICAL HORIZONS 'Don't Speak' hitmakers No Doubt have gone through a lot of musical styles since they started out as a Madness style Ska band in 1987, but they told APTN how their latest influences are Jamaica, Prince and Hip Hop. 'Rock Steady', their first album since 'Return of Saturn' in 2000, was released late last year, and is just 40,000 copies short of going platinum. But it is difficult not to notice how different the new single, with its bump and grind "dance hall" feel is to much of their earlier, punk inspired work. Gwen explains: "We were really in to this whole dance hall flavour and Tony had the idea 'let's go to Jamaica, I bet we could go to Jamaica and the record company would pay for it, we'll hook up with Sly and Robbie, these legendary producers' and he knew some guys down there because he had gone about a year and half ago and came back really inspired and he hooked it all up and the next thing that you know we are there." But the band have also had a chance to work with one of their idols, the The Artist Again Known as Prince, and Gwen was a little impressed: "Prince was amazing, just getting the call to go and sing on his record and then in return he was going to do a song with us, one of our songs and Tom and I and Tony wrote this song called the waiting room and gave the demo to Prince and he flew us all out to Paisley Park and he had re-worked the whole song and recorded this incredible version of it."

Constant touring and MTV's playing of 'Just a Girl' and 'Spiderwebs' helped the album achieve top 10 success. And when the album's third single, 'Don't Speak', became a massive hit around the world - their could be no doubt that No Doubt had arrived. Having started with Ska, moved through 80s synth pop, to 90s pop, Gwen touched down on hip-hop and a duet with Eve, 'Let Me Blow Ya Mind'. She explains how she got there: "I think hip hop in the last three years has been really cool. Out of all the music, Rock, Pop, Hip Hop, all that stuff, I think that Hip Hop really inspired us because those tracks are the most creative tracks that were coming out in the last few years." And she admits the collaboration, and hip hop as a genre, has fed back into the band's work. "The way that was influencing us is basically by the song structure of a hip hop songs where you have a consistent beat which is something that No Doubt has a real hard time doing," she explains. "We always like to play a million beats and have a hundred chords and ten bridges and I think with simplifying our sound a little bit more, it's something that we were always trying to do. We tried to do it on our last record and it didn't happen, this record we really think we did it and I think that Hip Hop music does that."
