Reissue of the 2004 debut album from Edward Ma aka edIT, from LA's popular and acclaimed Glitch Mob. Edward Ma's first album as edIT features tracks that have been painstakingly sequenced, hip hop taking glitch to the extreme. The style of the album takes cues from Prefuse 73 and early IDM-era Machinedrum, but taken to the next level. Yet it is not really the beat programming that really pops out at you, it's the soulfulness and smoothness with which each track is glued together from extremely small snippets of sound. The opener 'Ashtray' for instance features the smooth chords of an electric piano exploding into a shower of digital particles, all put together with the ear of an expert artist. Plucked acoustic guitars peek around the edge of many of the pieces, and there is a homage to both backpacker underground beats and more southern crunk styles going on. Crying Over Pros For No Reason is emotional, instrumental hip hop at its finest - looking forward with its digital edge but also beating with a warm analogue heart.
