★RED ARMY (TRANSLATION | DUST AUDIO | ONSET)★
In the mid 90’s, Red Army aka ‘James Fuhring’ rocked audiences in seminal punk/hardcore bands Mohinder and Jenny Piccolo. It was during the latter that he accidentally discovered the sound of Drum & Bass while in Berlin on a European tour. James was so blown away by this sound; he shortly sold all of his music equipment to buy a sampler, turntables and a mixer. The first two years were rough as he knew no one involved in DNB, only a local Santa Cruz radio show called 'The Metallic Blurp,' hosted by the Argon Records crew. James, on a whim, emailed the radio show to ask if he could meet up with other like minds. There he would meet the other two members that would form the 3-piece, Red Army. Together, they would shortly set dance floors on fire with releases on Skunkrock, Argon, Phuturo and eventually, N2O. The N2O deal soured on the crew, and it was beginning to be harder to work in the studio as James relocated to Sacramento, Joaquin would move back to San Diego to begin his film directing career and Justin would start what is now known as one of the largest electronic groups right now, The Glitch Mob. This left James as the soul output for the Red Army moniker. While getting nibbles for releases from a few labels, 05-09, saw a hard time on DNB altogether. Labels were switching to digital formats and vinyl was becoming obsolete, folding a great deal of labels, including ones that were planning on new Red Army releases. These tunes still have never seen the light of day. In 2009, James got serious again about the production side of the music and slowly started to release again on Simplify Recordings and Onset Audio, two Seattle based labels who are solely responsible for getting his music back out on the dance floors. Flash forward to the present, Red Army is now being released on Turbine Music (both digitally and some soon to be vinyl releases), Ground Mass, Onset Audio (responsible for 7 of his current releases) and a slew of support from some of the scene's veterans and up and comer's like Bailey, Dexta, Maouq, Stunna, Spindall, Homemade Weapons, Clima, Interline, Gremlinz, Reza, to name a few.

★ ONE A aka Gehno Aviance (ROMPER ROOM | HARDBOX | HOUSE OF AVIANCE)★
A part of the House of Aviance since 1989, One A, also known as Gehno Aviance started DJing since 1992. He got his start playing at legendary east coast parties and raves such as Ultraworld (BALT) and Buzz (DC). In the early 90's he joined the Snowball Collective from NYC and DC and went on to throw some of the most-talked (to this day) underground and weekly parties in Washington DC. In 1998 he moved to San Francisco where he has continued to dj and hone his talent to this day. His sound is an amalgam of 22+ years of musical influences which has been described as Deep Garage Tech. His sets incorporate Deep Tech, Garage, Breaks and Techno into a seamless musical journey deep rooted in the past whist always keeping his finger on the pulse of the future.
