Born in Napa, ID, Adam Drucker, or Doseone, one of the founders of the group Themselves (Jel was the other) and a main player in Subtle and cLOUDDEAD, spent much of his youth in Philadelphia and New Jersey perfecting his battle raps.
However, after he moved to Cincinnati to attend college, he began focusing more on his poetry and how it could be applied to music. He self-released his first album, 1998's Hemispheres, and the same year began recording as part of Deep Puddle Dynamics (along with Jel, Slug from Atmosphere, and Sole and Alias from Live Poets) for their debut album, The Taste of Rain...Why Kneel? In 2000 Themselves released their first album, Them, under the Anticon label that Dose had helped form, and in 2002 the duo issued The No Music and later added a third member, Dax Pierson, on keyboards, theremin, Dr. Sample, and background vocals. Besides working and touring with Themselves, Dose has also been involved in projects with Prefuse 73, Aesop Rock, Buck 65, and others. ~ Marisa Brown, Rovi
