Biography

Born and raised in Weston, Massachussetts, Edward Ma, now known to the world as edIT, began his music career as “The Con Artist” just before the turn of the millennium. As a resident DJ at the now defunct Konkrete Jungle Los Angeles, he shared the stage with Hive, Daddy Kev, James Tai and mic rockers Busdriver, P.E.A.C.E. and Mikah 9. Konkrete Jungle marked the golden age of indie hip-hop in Los Angeles, and was the bridge between the jungle and b-boy massives. During this time, he also held a residency at Dublab Radio. He was one of the very first Dublab DJs and broadcasted two weekly shows from the legendary Melrose Avenue studio. Far ahead of its time, Dublab operated as an internet radio station and served as a unifying force for the melting pot of L.A.’s intellectual DJ culture. During this musical renaissance, edIT used “The Con Artist” name to produce and engineer for the likes of Sole (Anticon), Busdriver (Epitaph), Aloe Blacc (Stones Throw), Emanon (Shaman Work), and Dr. Oop (Black Love).

It was 2003 when “The Con Artist” adopted the edIT moniker, while finishing his debut solo album Crying Over Pros for No Reason. The album was released by µ-Ziq’s Planet-Mu imprint a year later in 2004. The album was a downtempo love-maker’s epic about opportunities lost. Shortly thereafter, he shifted gears towards the dance floor and remixed Daedelus’ “Dumbfound” for Plug Research, which became a party rockin’ classic, and further established edIT as a force to be reckoned with in the IDM and electronic worlds.

    the name "ediT" is cool, but it makes searching your music on the internet nearly impossible! lol

    For everyone telling Edit to create more music like "COPFNR" please do the following: Build a time machine and go back to the 1930s, tell Hemingway to write more books like The Sun Also Rises before he does something like write Old Man and the Sea. While you're at it please tell Salvador Dali to stick to his early work before he creates something like The Hallucinogenic Toreador. Too hard? Okay, then teach yourself how to create really good electronic music that evokes powerful emotions and make your own version of COPFNR. Still too hard? Okay, I guess you should just keep telling artists how they are doing it wrong on the internet.

    oh come on, I love Crying Over Pros but The Glitch Mob is awesome too. There is no reason to hate the group just because edIT is producing another style of glitch.
