Band Name/Artist Name: Abrasiv
Album Name: Split Screen
Music Style: Dance
There's a talented and growing EDM community in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro, NC area, and Abrasiv is one of the new arrivals. From his hillside project studio (which he calls "The Shire" - term credited to a friend), he has been quietly developing a signature sound characterized by danceable grooves, layers of tension and intensity, and twisted drops.
Strongly influenced by a broad range of music - metal, dancehall, punk, 80s alternative, breaks, soca, etc. - and inspired by artists like Skrillex - he seeks to be both accessible and innovative and the results are intriguing.
