Dennis "Abrasive" Harmon at the age of 19 started producing at the age of 13 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he was born. He developed his signature sound using a Korg Drum Machine and a Casio Keyboard. He has progressed in the last 6 years and now has his own independent label called Newzbreak Productions. He writes and produces all of his own music, which has lead to the release of two Albums titled The Bad News and Global Warming. He also Composes, Engineer's, and Masters his own music. If that isnt enough he DJs for parties in his area, has a radio show called Bad News, and has performed at local shows and colleges in the U.S. He is currently in College pursuing his dream in the entertainment industry. He is changing the local music game by bringing in something he calls abrasive, which is a unique, creative, and aggressive style that I believe the world has been waiting for. His talents are far more then just producing. He has proven himself in writing, Acting, Film Scoring, composing, and disk Jockey as well. Abrasive has worked with people from both coast and here in the Mid-west. He has artist who have opened up for such names as Ray-j, Young Jeezy, and Cameron. He had also worked with executives from major label's and is still expanding out of his boundary lines. Abrasive B is working on getting his own record label. So far Abrasive has his own artist and his own production. He is growing as an Producer,and entrepreneur and I, and people around the world feel he is going to make a big mark on the music industry!
