I do not have many details but DJ HIVE was in a car accident a few days ago. I was told that he is ok.... He is one of the greatest and most innovative D&B DJ/Producer on earth. Lets all hope he recovers quickly and will be behind the decks again soon. Between founding two record labels, composing original tracks and constant touring, the L.A.-based DJ Hive has emerged as a major figure in the underground music movement. Born and raised in Washington DC, Hive made the transcontinental move to Los Angeles in 1992 & spent the next few years in the underground trenches of LA, conspiring with various emcees and producers on different projects. In late 1996, Hive formed his own independent record label, Mandala Recordings, and proceeded with the limited release (only 500 vinyl copies) of his first album, Working With Sound. At the same time, Hive also managed to start Celestial Recordings, an L.A.-based underground hip-hop and drum-and-bass label. Celestial has emerged as one of the most respected independent labels in the underground music movement. Hive is also a founder of Vortex & Violence Recordings & is also affiliated with the Phunckateck collective.
