The four man crew known as the Glitch Mob have been shattering sound systems and breaking down musical boundaries for well over 2 years now, and it is with great pleasure that Boston gets to have a taste. Edward Ma aka “edIT” of The Glitch Mob touches down in Boston for a very special night of beats, breaks, and bass.
A quick history lesson on edIT: This “Con Artist” is a Massachusetts native and former Konkrete Jungle L.A. (now defunct) resident DJ. As a Konkrete L.A. resident he shared the stage with Hive, Daddy Kev, James Tai & Mic Rockers Busdriver, P.E.A.C.E. and Mikah 9. In 2004 he dropped his debut solo album Crying Over Pros For No Reason, which was released on Planet Mu records. From there he went on to remix and mash tunes geared more towards the dance floor. His popularity began to soar and before he knew it URB magazine was telling people to keep their eyes peeled for this up and coming artist in 2006. His next major release, Certified Air Raid Material, was focused more on his personal production and showcasing his creative skill behind the buttons. The highly anticipated four-year album in the making will be dropping some time this year on Alpha Pup Records.
edIT always brings his ‘A’ game to the decks, laptop, or whatever he uses to create, manipulate, and destroy beats. “The way you bring [the music] live is what matters," Ma stated in his interview with XLR8R magazine. "The whole purpose of why we’re doing this is that we’re basically out there writing music to wow ourselves and wow other people. So the connection with the audience is huge for us.”
