bioassay was created in April of 2008 by Mauricio, aka [dj] ::analogue:: (formerly known as dj shad0wdancer), as a creative experiment drawing influences from various bands in the Electronic, Industrial, EBM/TBM, Synthpop and Futurepop genres.  Along the way, he picked up the visual, vocal and keyboard talents of Holly aka DJ Engelockt.  Continuing still today as a duo, bioassay is close to finishing their second album, following the debut release, “Memoirs of a Broken Heart”.
