Crying Over Pros is a mixture of the folktronic, experimental, and avant hip-hop sounds that has become the norm in IDM music, circa 2004. It doesn't entirely emulate, but unquestionably treads dangerously close waters to Scott Herren's Prefuse 73 project and mixes that school of tight, frantic drum programming with the laid-back melancholic melodies Teflon Tel Aviv have all but claimed for their own. The lexicon of electronic music isn't expanded here by any means, but edIT's understanding of melody, rhythm and his instruments provides a charming ten-track session that is not only a strong debut, but sets the creative bar high for future creative endeavors.
