Jet Project

From deep electronic sounds to tougher peak time grooves, the Jet Project have proved themselves to be major players both on the production front and behind the decks. Releases and remixes on labels as varied as Get Physical, Snatch!, Viva, Intimacy, Renaissance, Soma & Alive mean the Belfast duo are constantly raising the bar for themselves and their contemporaries.
The Jet Project story began when Timmy Stewart and John McIver were brought together through a mutual love for house music. Both were an integral part of the Belfast scene, John regularly attended Timmy’s Digital Boogie parties and they often bumped into each other whilst crate digging in their city’s best vinyl emporiums, soon discovering they had almost identical taste in music.
It’s worth remembering that the dance music pedigree of Belfast is very strong. The city is the home of seminal techno institution Shine were both djs were residents for over 4 years before moving to their current home at Yello. Early influences and experiences came from David Holmes's legendary Face, Sugar Sweet and Shake Ya Brain events, where the guys regularly got exposed to cutting edge house and techno, you could say these early years helped shape the sound they are known for today.
After a few electric back-to-back dj sets at Shine the guys decided the next logical step was to take all their influences and experience and combine them in the studio. Over the last few years they have perfected their craft with an impressive array of releases on some of the worlds biggest imprints.
Glasgow heads Silicone Soul were the first to spot the twosomes talent and signed their first EP to Darkroom Dubs. Two further EPs followed eventually leading to their debut album, ‘Heads In The Clouds’, which secured the IDJ album of the month slot, not long after the world really began to take notice.
 
The remix requests then came flooding in and to date the boys have turned out sterling reworkings for the likes of Two Lone Swordsmen, Yousef, M.in, Tom Budden and Roman Tapia amongst others. Jet Project productions were soon getting widespread DJ support, we are talking M.A.N.D.Y., Steve Lawler, Carl Cox, DJ T,  Slam, John Digweed, Thomas Schumacher, Sebastian Leger, Rolando, Danny Tenaglia and more.
Stepping things up a gear, the Jet Project secured releases on Get Physical with ‘Understand This’, Intimacy music with “Pearl Driver” and ‘The Black Arts’ EP on Viva Music. They’ve recently become a firm favourite with Riva Starr who’s welcomed them into his Snatch! family. Their remix of Ramon Tapia’s ‘You’ve Got to (Keep Movin)’ and U Know single were on heavy rotation in clubs and there is a host of new music soon to drop on Snatch!.
To say the Jets are prolific producers is something of an understatement. Their rich, bass-heavy tracks can rock the biggest space and their production skills have grown hand-in-hand with an increasingly busy DJ schedule. As well as being at the forefront of the Belfast scene, they have showcased their sound at clubs in Berlin, Barcelona, Paris, London, Glasgow, Ibiza, and the USA.
So what can you expect to hear in a Jet Project DJ set?
“We are suckers for a good bassline,” explains John, “and although quite rare, strong vocal tracks. We like to move around a bit, so deep, acid, hip-house and techno tracks can find their way into our sets if they prick up our ears, we can make it fit and flow, it goes in.”
Also on the agenda is the Jet Project live show. With over 100 original productions and remixes to their name, they have a wealth of material at their disposal for creating a unique live performance that can be slightly different every time and tailored to fit the mood of the club.
Timmy and John also joined forces with Chris Duckenfield – Sheffield’s Duckbeats – to create the forward thinking Extended Play label which now has a dozen well received releases under its belt and received support from djs as diverse as Dixon and Claude Von Stroke.
New material for Get Physical is already in the pipeline with the next album scheduled for release on Snatch! Records.
It’s all about standing out from the crowd in the current dance scene and that’s exactly what the Jet Project is all about both as DJs and producers. Born out of a passion for solid dance floor electronics, Timmy and John have now got into their stride and are equally at home in underground sweat boxes as they are smashing up main rooms.
It seems like every man and his dog can mix two digital files together these days,” says Timmy, “but for us, good djing has always been about programming the music and dropping the right track at the right moment. We always strive to do this in our sets, no matter where and when we are playing.”
