Charlotte grew up in the 70s on the Southside of Chicago, where she learned how to dance and keep a beat before she could even walk. A funk junkie before she hit puberty, buying records and making “mix” tapes (with one turntable, a radio and a Panasonic blue tape deck) by the age of 9, Chicago proved to be an ideal place for the unknowing funkstress to develop her cool blend of house, hip-hop, techno, break beat, funk, & disco.
In 1979 she stood witness to George Clinton and his P-Funk Fest and then headed to her first underground disco party. That night, at the sprightly age of 14, Charlotte began her evolution into the innovative, adventurous artist we know and love.
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. He may even drop an original track or two.
His latest release on the Friends With Benefits Records is named "The Godbody". Available on Beatport, iTunes, etc. Creator of the Bay Area's Romper Room (Oakland), at the moment Gehno holds residencies at: Hardbox (SF) & Shade Structure (SF).
