Watch the ‘Heat’ music video from ‘JETStream’

‘Heat’ is the first music video from the new JET Collective double album ‘JetStream’

‘Heat’ began life as an idea in 2004, and was then redeveloped for this project. The music takes influence from African and equatorial music and rhythms, with the strident marimbas, the guitar and higher bass parts imitating mosquitos, creating an intense rhythmic feel punctuated by short pauses.

‘JetStream’ is the new double album from the JET Collective, due to be released in December 2014 on JETWorks Records. The suite of material draws inspiration from the weather and climate in its broadest sense, with material based on the science of weather, solar radiation, poetry, seasonal conditions, climate exploration and the way we feel about the weather.

Thanks to Ian Dearman for shooting and editing the video.
Thanks to the Old Library Studios in Mansfield – we recorded the album there during this year, and shot the video in the theatre space in August.

Written by Paul Biggins.

Simon Beckett – Percussion, Bongos
Paul Biggins – Spanish Guitar, High Keys Marimbas
Karen Clegg – Med & Low Keys Marimbas, Synth Strings

Steve Salfield – Tenor Sax
