Bio

HI MOTIVE is an electronic duo coming out of Inner Sydney, comprised of Matt Rowe and Ed Rose. HI MOTIVE pairs ethereal vocals with deep, driving electronic production. After Triple J Unearthed success with their early singles, 'Falling' and 'Silk', the duo have furthered their sound on their third release ‘Gone'.

Since forming in January, HI MOTIVE have also been developing on their two-man live show, with recent performances at Jam In A Jar Charity Festival and the Electronic Music Conference (EMC) held in Sydney in November.

With Ed hailing from Tasmania and Matt from Queensland, the pair first began writing indie electronic mixes together in the walls of their dorm room, before they moved out together to begin their path to becoming aspiring electronic artists.

Since forming in 2019, HI MOTIVE have signed on with Niche Productions, since performing at the Electronic Music Conference and supporting Australian act BOO SEEKA during their 2019 Indo Summer Series Tour.

Their latest release, ‘Free Me’, shows a new side of HI MOTIVE, with stirring vocals and triumphant chorus.

Building towards an EP release later this year after time in Berlin and L.A., HI MOTIVE are hoping their continued efforts will form the grounding for a debut tour in the near future.

that production is both emphatic and locks you in, a big one here from hi motive.
