When: Friday November 16, 2001

THE past two years have been nothing short of perfect for Sydney drum and bass outfit The Hive. Following the release of Cosmic Oversight, Thrill Popper and its debut album Curiosity Flow, the group has become one of the most popular dance acts in the country.

It performed to a sell-out crowd in Perth recently during its Curiosity Continuous Flow Tour and had a support slot for Nitin Sawhney at The Enmore Theatre. In August the group released the follow up EP to its debut album, The Mordechai Tapes. The EP features five tracks including remixes of the title track and the popular Yes, I Bet You Have. The tracks received reworkings from Hive members Lachlan Brahe, Tony Buchen, Will Frasier and Curiosity Flow co-producer Ricky Pannowitz. The Mordechai Tapes album features vocalist Lior Attar reciting a Hebrew prayer, layered over drum and bass rhythms, a hip hop bass line and Indian-based sitar keyboard lines.

The track was recorded live.

The group was last in the Hunter in September for the Wollombi Festival. The Hive will perform in Newcastle at The Cambridge Hotel on Friday night with Good Buddha, Auxilary and Kato. TE has five double passes to give away.
