Hive is a drum and bass/jungle/techno/whatever artist out of Los Angeles, California, and is not to be mistaken for The Hives, a Swedish garage-punk band.

If you're one of the other two people who've heard of Hive, it may be because Tom Fulp uses the song "Ultrasonic Sound" in Pico, the game of shooting up your classmates on the infamous Newgrounds site. This is where I was introduced to Hive, anyway, and the only reason I even know such a thing as drum'n'bass exists. "Ultrasonic Sound" is, by the way, an excellent song that defies categorization and boldy straddles several genres all at once, and I highly recommend it.

Zerotime says: Ultrasonic Sound was also used on The Matrix soundtrack, so they're probably a bit more well-known than you think. Strewth! Damn. And here I thought I was special.

However, there is still a dismaying lack of information about Hive on the internet. That's partly why this writeup's so long--I didn't feel a brief discography was enough. I've scraped together what I could find to bring you this discography/track listing, but if you know better than I and see any glaring errors or omissions, for Cthulhu's sake, please /msg me. Thank you.
