Dazzle Drums
DJ / Producer Dazzle Drums is the two of Nagi & Kei Sugano

Kei Sugano, The Hip Hop culture of '92 spurred him to be a DJ in the club and the disco in Tokyo. After a valuable experience from Tony Humphries and Timmy Regisford, he has mechanically changed his style to more soulful music based on house and dance classics, leading him to NYC several times experiencing the dance floors of parties such as The Loft, Zanzibar, Sound Factory Bar, The Warehouse (Bronx), The Shelter, and Body & SOUL.

Nagi, Loves the dance music since she was 15, way before she set a foot in a disco or a club. Her first club experience was in '96, invited by her gay friend. The journey as a DJ had begun on the dance floor, where she discovered individuality in an environment in which nationality didn't matter. From there she joined "Smoker", hosted by the Japanese legendary DJ Nori at club LOOP from '98 to '08.

Both members started DJing individually in the 90s. Although rooted in soulful house music, their selection blends a wide variety of tracks of dance, house classics as well as current songs. In 2005 they began producing music using the name Dazzle Drums. After building up their catalog with releases through overseas labels King Street Sounds, Centric Music, Tony Records, Makin Moves, Nulu Electronic, Tribe Records. DJs such as Danny Krivit, Joaquin Joe Claussell, Louie Vega, Tony Humphries, DJ Nori, DJ Emma and Tim Sweeney have all been known to include their tracks in their sets. In 2010 they launched their own imprint, Green Parrot Recording. In 2014 they released Japan limited album "Rise From The Shadows".

In 2016 their album "Concrete Jungle" which was released on Nulu Electronic (label CEO Anane Vega). In July of the same year, Dazzle Drums appeared at the Worldwide Festival at Sete Southern France which organized by Giles Peterson. In December They appeared in Ray Ban x Boiler Room, Tokyo.
