International future jazz duo Sungazer was founded by YouTuber and bassplayer Adam Neely and drummer Shawn Crowder. Since 2014, the two have been bringing out their unique blend of jazz fusion, 8-bit, progressive rock and EDM. The initial spark for the band was to try an unconventional recording/production process: Shawn would go into the studio and record himself playing drums, by himself, with no music written, and would play along to a click track and improvise some short-form mini “solos”. Then, Adam would take what was recorded, and write music to that afterwards. Their aim is to explore the human element of improvisation within the context of modern electronic music. Exciting and always unpredictable.
