Up Until Now
Jay Murphy of Up Until Now has so far lived his life completely centered and orbiting around music. He comes from a collective past involved in bands with genres of reggae, world beat, rock, hip hop, funk, electro-pop,and even heavy metal. With this new project, he distills the pure essence in music that has always driven him, and channels it into electronic dance music with the sole purpose of making bodies move. When you get talent of this type with huge broad experience, and focus it into one vision, you best believe that it burns like a laser. Now, add human drumming machine Kyle Holly from jamtronica band Noise[Org], and you have a serious live electronic force to be reckoned with.
Since playing his first show in early 2010, Up Until Now has performed across the country from Portland, OR to Jacksonville, FL, from New York City to Austin, TX. He has been blessed to share the stage with such acts as Snoop Dogg, STS9, Big Gigantic, The New Deal, Bonobo, Two Fresh, and Emancipator just to name a few. In the summer of 2011 he was featured at some of the top music festivals in the country such as Camp Bisco X, Regeneration Music and Arts Festival, and Blackwater Music Festival. With the momentum Up Until Now has built in 2011, 2012 is sure to be a huge year. Keep an eye out for UUN coming to your town real soon.

"In 2008, Jay Jaramillo developed ProJect Aspect, a progressive new paradigm for exploring music and engaging with the community. With over 12 years of dedicated musical experience, three of which were spent producing electronic music, Jaramillo has honed a highly developed style instantly recognizable and uniquely his own. With a pair of the fastest hands in the business and the unbridled passion of an inspired genius, Project Aspect wears his heart on his sleeve and lays his soul bare in every track he creates. His style encompasses everything from stunningly gorgeous electronic anthems featuring sultry female vocals to explosive, window-shattering, dance-floor bangers. Project Aspect is rapidly garnering support throughout the national electronic community and has shared the stage with artists such as STS9, Feed Me, Datsik, EOTO, MartyParty, VibeSquaD and Nit Grit. Within the past 2 years Jay has released 4 Full Length albums on forward thinking labels such as 1320records, Simplify, and Gruntworthy, one of which being a collaboration album with fellow Colorado comrade Unlimited Gravity, 2 Remix albums on Bandcamp as well as being featured on multiple Compilation albums such as Subsynthesis' 'Bass From Above and Mimi Page's 'Harmonious Heartbeats: The Mimi Page Remixes'. With a personal music library as expansive as the spectrum of human emotions, Jay has orchestrated his musical journey around providing an exceptionally unpredictable, unprecedented live performance. Project Aspect is only just beginning, and he has already performed at several noteworthy sites such as Sonic Bloom Festival, Wakarusa Music Festival and Global Dance Festival at the legendary Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Morrison Colorado. Each sets is composed of entirely original material, and every show is an utterly inimitable occasion of phenomenally relevant artistic expression and creative brilliance."

In 2008 I began ProJect Aspect, a new vision in a digital/electronic light. My Aspect is the specifics included within the depths of sound, creating multiple layers to overall provide an unpredictable live performance meant to touch the soul. A lot of emotion goes into writing tracks for me. The biggest opportunity to express my rawest of feelings and lay them all out on the table. I write songs to perform them live. Nothing makes my heart happier than playing live music and connecting with new people. In January 2008 I began pursuing musical creation in a new light. With electronic/hip hop influences ranging all across the galaxy, I Started "ProJect Aspect". A new vision, way of looking at music as a whole, an idea if you will. Computer performance is the backbone of this project and performing 100% Organic, original material is an essential piece in what which makes ProJect Aspect. With a vast array of heavy bass tones, melodic ambience, whompy hyphy crunchy beats, and mashup acapellas, Aspect brings a unique sound to the dance floor that will leave you craving more!
