edIT, May 17, Neurolux 

Lace up your dancing shoes and put on your party pants because the freshest sound in hip-hop and glitch is coming to Boise. Edward Ma, better known as edIT of Los Angeles-based The Glitch Mob, will showcase his skills here in Boise.

As a member of the The Glitch Mob, edIT's immaculate production style is the new standard in progressive hip-hop. Much of his work leans toward the electronic side of this popular genre, but his attention to detail, taste for obscure sound, and skill with a turntable sets edIT far apart from the typical house party record mixer. He has been quoted as saying, "We are just trying to make the music that we want to hear because no one else has made it for us."

His latest solo album, Certified Air Raid Material, is a lesson in the future of hip-hop. Featuring such prominent artists as D-Styles, Busdriver and The Grouch, edIT shows his fans a bold new style that eclipses his earlier material, which was mellow and melodic. Ma describes his new album as a way to "drop bombs on the dance floor." In his words, "the world needs no more bombs," so the punchy sound of this album is his way of encouraging people to get their aggression out through dance, not violence.

The show at the Neurolux will feature edIT and local dub-step duo Evol G & Hecca, as well as Pat Benolkin, resident Neurolux DJ and producer of the local ambient music project Electricwest.

May 17. 9 p.m., $5. Neurolux, 111 N. 11th St., 208-343-0886.
