Jana Rush.....hailing from the south side of Chicago, deejaying from the age of 10 and making tracks at 13 continues to be some sort of urban legend of ghetto/basement tracks. Influenced by Robert Armani, Lester Fitzpatrick, Cajmere, Dj Milton, and Dj Deeon, when Jana hits the studio she always lets the cards fall where may. Jana became friends with DJ RashadGant-Man, and Nehpets while deejaying at WKKC in the early 90's and of course the rest is history (or not). Jana has always acknowledged DJ Rashad as her biggest fan/supporter and to this day uses him as motivation to break through many of life obstacles. Even though Jana is not always noticed on the scene, rest assure she is not far away. Jana is known for covertly showing up unexpected in the land of Ghetto/Juke/Footwork events, so watch out!
