    <b> edIT </b> - Crying Over Pros For No Reason

    The British imprint Planet Mu has had a number of notable hits in recent times from the likes of Hrvatski, 000, dDamage, Leafcutter John and label head Mike Paradinas, among others, and their distinct ear for some of the catchiest, most enjoyable electronic based music in the current scene is once again well-represented by the debut from Ed Ma’s edIT project. Crying Over Pros for No Reason features a lot of the cut-and-paste trickery exhibited by Prefuse 73,
