Jana Rush is a US-based DJ and producer.
A Chicago native, Rush’s music deconstructs the sound of the city’s footwork tradition, as well as incorporating elements of jungle, acid, soul and jazz.
Jana began DJing at the age of 10. Producing soon followed, leading to the release of The Armagedon alongside DJ Deeon in 1996. After a long break from music, she returned under the name JA Ru with 2016’s MPC 7635 EP before releasing her debut LP Pariah in 2017.
At Loop 2020, Jana will host a Studio Session in which she will reveal her fluid approach to sampling and how she constructs her genre-defying tracks. She will also play a DJ set at the Loop Night Program in the Tresor club on Saturday, April 25.
