In this episode of INSIGHTS, we have the honour of being joined by Jana Rush! Her most recent two records, 2021’s ‘Painful Enlightenment’ and this year’s ‘Dark Humour’, on the legendary label, Planet Mu, have seen her not only push the boundaries of her own sound but of footwork as a whole. It’s safe to say then that we were thrilled to speak to this visionary producer, Chicago O.G. and one of our favourite artists. Over the course of this interview, Jana discusses her early years and getting into music at a young age via radio, the Chicago scene in the 90’s, meeting and working alongside legends such as Gant-Man, DJ Rashad, DJ Deeon, & Paul Johnson and how the scene compares today. We then discuss her albums, ‘Painful Enlightenment’ & ‘Dark Humour’, going in depth on Jana’s approach to production, sampling and pushing the boundaries of the footwork genre. Jana then shares highlights from her recent EU tour and her approach to performing live, before rounding up some of her favourite artists and inspirations, finishing with a peek into what the future holds for her! ---SUPPORT JANA RUSH:Bandcamp - https://jaru.bandcamp.com/musicSoundcloud - https://soundcloud.com/jaru-1Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/jana_rush/SUPPORT JANA’S FAVOURITE ARTISTS:DJ Orange Julius: https://djorangejulius.bandcamp.com/musicFoodman: https://foodman.bandcamp.comDJCOREY: https://djcoreybdh.bandcamp.comSUPPORT AWAKE ALL HOURS: www.patreon.com/awakeallhours
