So far, 2011 has been a big year for Jerry Jay Jaramillo, better known for the music he makes as Project Aspect. A veteran of both the Sonic Bloom and Wakarusa music festivals, Jaramillo teased audiences with songs from this EP during his live sets before dropping them as one collection on Beatport. Put This World on Hold, which features fellow musician and MC Zack "Kruza Kid" Karuzas, goes easy on the samples; made up of Jaramillo's original music, the EP offers a compelling glimpse of the direction in which this talented young producer is headed. On "Mile High State of Mind," Jaramillo and Karuzas give props to Denver while showing off their hip-hop roots, and "Where's the Jar to My Lid?" comes on strong with the bass and glitch, perfectly balancing the album.
