Product Description

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.

Planet Mu has made a name for itself with its persistant persuit of new talent, this latest endeavour bringing to life the debut work of L.A's Edward Ma, aka edIT. The sound is a somehow familiar blend of acoustic "song" constructions developed with electronic means, but the delivery stands out for its intricacy and warmth. Album openers "Ashtray" and "Ants" play around careful guitar strums and post-rockish tendencies, interjected with vocal hiccups and loops more reminiscent of the man Prefuse 73. The instrumentation seeps through with a lo-fi, distant tinge - think of an instrumental version of Styrofoam's excellent last album for Morr Music for a frame of reference. Only album closer "Mildew" departs from the blueprint, instead opting for a more Tommy Guerero-esque strum of the lonely guitar in a relaxed, sunny manner. "Crying Over Pros For No Reason" doesn't necessarily add any new words to the electronic / acoustic vocabulary, but the language it employs is articulated with a lovely, heartwarming understanding of melody and construction that should be applauded and checked out by those of you who live life on the mellow side without delay. Nice.

I can't stress how good the music on this album is. You can instantly tell that the artist really worked hard on perfecting this...there isn't a bad track on this album...every track has a story to tell. I personally love the magical "Laundry". Everytime I listen to this album I discover something new, this is definitely up there with my favourite albums of all time. The beauty of this album is in the detail, it's a glitchy-hip hop-electronic trip. Even when it's fast and furious there a chilled bass line that evens the keel.

To sum it up: a beautifully mastered, ingeniously crafted, timeless record; years ahead of the game. I don't think this can be bettered or topped even by edIT himself. You'll never hear anything like it.

really I gave it 3.5 stars 2 July 2004
By R. Solomon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is Ed Ma's first album and has drawn comparsions with the work of Prefuse 73. In my mind that's rather misleading but if we keep with this comparions "Crying over pros" is more like "Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives" than 2003's "Extinguised" albums. It has also drawn some comparisons to the work of Cex (check the Wire, 245).
The album could be described as glitch-hop. Underneath the tunes is a definite hip hop beat but one which twist in turns in some interesting directions (ie. the hop). Over the top there's nice guitar prolifitating throughout, some outakes from a supermarket purchase, other strings (violins possibly?) all cut up like (ie. the glitch). The production is really tight and I found this quiet an emotional record; the arrangements are melodic and senitmental.
Favourite tracks include Laundry, Dex and Ants. It's a solid first album from Ed Ma and suggests good things to come. Recommended.

LAUNDRY itself good enough for 5* album 28 Dec. 2009
By V S - Published on Amazon.com
LAUNDRY is one of the best glitchstep songs EVER. Featured in Insilico sim in Second Life on more than one occasion, it is making its rounds.

This is one of my FAVORITE songs of ALL TIME. I can't get sick of it. It's emotional and totally cyberpunk.

masterpiece 24 July 2004
By J. Gryder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this album is great, it's some downbeat glitch-hop, very smooth, technical, and groundbreaking idm. it has a lot of instrumentation, which makes it different from most idm, kinda like savath & savalas with the tricky glitch type beats. if you like autechre, boards of canada, prefuse 73/savath & savalas, ect. this album will not dissapoint. a must have for any idm fanatic.
