Pelski interview Jet Project , where they discuss their critically acclaimed 2009 album 'Heads In The Cloud', the duo's separate projects T-Bone and Yankee Zulu, and their label Extended Play. Their latest mixtape is also up for grabs.
Jet Project - consisting of T-bone (Timmy Stewart) and Yankee Zulu (Johnny McIver) - are famous for their techy house productions, their surging, sub-aquatic bombs'll lay waste to any dancefloor. But they've also been consistently wowing critics: 2009 album Heads In The Clouds was hailed across the board; recent releases on Get Physical and Beef Records have been praised no end by DJ Mag, iDJ and Mixmag; and the Irish duo are known to always turn in the remix pick.

Read lots of press releases for forgettable albums recently?
Luckily for all of us, this mighty collection of tracks doesn’t fall into that category. “Heads In The Clouds” is the work of Belfast’s finest exports of quality underground music the Jet Project, the dj & production duo that comprises of Timmy Stewart & John McIver.
This dirty dozen is a showcase of some of their finest moments for Darkroom Dubs, neatly stitched together with brand new material, it takes in all their influences as djs from deep & dubby house music to weird off kilter electronics and peak time dancefloor bombs. These two enthusiasts have been present and involved in Belfast's ever burgeoning club scene from its Acid House beginnings to its post-troubles renaissance. This is the sound of the duo running at full tilt. Referencing their years of experience in control of the dance floor and losing control on it and pushing their studio work into effortlessly effective new shapes without ever losing site of the main objective. A collection of ready-to-play, immaculately constructed hedonistic hymns, that live very much in the moment, but will undoubtedly endure much longer.
Each track on this collection is perfect for a club set but just as easily rolls from start to finish as a complete body of work, in a similar fashion to one of their back-to-back dj sets.
Already picking up support from the likes of Andrew Weatherall, Francois K, John Digweed, Steve Lawler, Laurent Garnier, Chris Duckenfield, Paul Woolford and Heidi. With their ‘Heads In the Clouds’ but always one eye set firmly on the floor, it’s safe to say that the Jet Project are cleared for take off.
