Dose the Alien a.k.a. Drew Taylor began producing electronic music in 1989 when he and Wendy Middlestadt Crankshaft. Fueled by the Industrial sound of the time by such bands as Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, Ministry and Meat Beat Manifesto the two set out to create their own unique sound. After a summer of composing tracks they released Take One. In the spring of 1990 The Music Press voted “Take One” Best Industrial Album and Artists by their readers.
In 1990 Dose the Alien took his electronic sound even further with his first solo project Skin Turning Violet. In June 1990 his solo album “House Turning Empty” was released and was referred to as “ audio sculpture ” and " anti-matter audio amplification… " in reviews. House Turning Empty was full of hard hitting industrial beats, heavily distorted guitars, and ripping synth lines. Once the album was released he assembled a band so that the material on House Turning Empty could be performed live. In the fall of 1991 he began touring the Central and Upstate New York areas.
In early 1993, Dose the Alien returned to the studio and began work on his first solo studio project in over three years. The result of over six months of studio experimentation was released in November of 1993 under the name Random Noise Generator . The album was actually released as a comic book with the music as its soundtrack.
Between March 1996 and June 1999, The Bubble was the home of Dose the Alien. The Bubble was a home, a studio, and saw over 80 events thrown by three different production companies over its four years in operation. Its during this time that Drew had been recording the new material for his first studio album since 1997s “Archaeology”.
