Along the way, Tom Anderson's production work gained the attention of long-time friend and DJ Mark Hunt. They decided to join forces to form Motive, the musical depiction of their combined personalities. Motive's production work is intended to be a reflection of the classic house music that inspired them and the possibilities the future holds, observing the essence of all of their musical influences. Their first credit was with West Coast record label Spundae for their song "Inner Depth", which was featured on a Spundae vinyl compilation and also featured as the opening track on Jerry Bonham's 2001 mixed CD "Spundae Presents Interpretations II". Motive wrote and produced two more tracks called "Please Don't" and "Not Without Your Love" which were released in 2002 with European label Viscous Disc, a Fluid Recordings Project. Most recently, Motive has joined forces with Fade Records to produce a vocal track called "A.B.E. featuring Abagale Fischer". Prompted by the opening spot on Chris Fortier's mix album, "Audio Tour", "A.B.E." is Fade's biggest release to date. The "A.B.E." (Real 128 Mix) landed on yet another compilation on the Distinctive Breaks imprint. This time with Australian DJ Phil K with the album "Y4K".
