New stretch target

This would go towards signing more artists and putting more vinyl out. May even be able to squeeze a club night in London out of it! 


Jana Rush has been a part of Chicago's footwork scene for a long time but until now she has been overlooked for release. Objects Limited, a label dedicated to giving stage to woman and non binary artists, signed Jana in 2016 with her EP 'MPC 7635'. 

Jana's album 'Pariah' has been called "footwork album of the year" by Mixmag in this awesome interview (http://mixmag.net/feature/chicago-og-jana-rush-creates-unconventional-footwork-thats-making-an-impact/8 )

Currently, Pariah can only be bought digitally or on CDs, the money raised will pay for the manufacture of 300 vinyl presses of Pariah, meaning less waste and you will directly support the artists and labels you love. The first 100 copies will be sold here, the rest will go to shops.

Back with the heat, Chicago native DJ Jana Rush kicks off Objects Limited’s 2017 with her debut album ‘Pariah’. Jana Rush received attention for her mind-bending drum acrobatics on last year's ‘MPC 7635’ EP under the name Ja Ru, also released by Objects Ltd. Jana started DJiing aged just 10, releasing her first record on Dance Mania back in 1996, but having a hiatus from music between 2000 and 2013. With ‘Pariah’ she has created an album rooted in Chicago's footwork sound, but with a myriad of influences, such as jungle, acid, soul, jazz and house, developing her sound on from ‘MPC 7635’. 

We kick off with ‘Midline Shift’ whose breathy, clipped erotic vocals intertwine with a pulsing bass and dry 808 rims creating a shimmering robotic effect. Moving on, the frantic ‘Beat Maze’ confuses the mind with white noise rushes and interlocking snares. Changing the scene, ‘Divine’ is sweetly soporific and charming, a beautiful, almost eerie track. The pace picks right back up with ‘??? ??’, whose warbling jazz clarinets cut into a juke bounce. The stripped back beats of ‘Break It’ give one room to breathe before the croaking bass and distorted acid of ‘No Fuks Given’. ‘Old Skool’ is exactly what you'd expect, its sample syncopated around a feverish rhythm throughout. Both ‘Rapid Fire and ‘Acid Tech 2’ are bangers, hitting you deep in that sweet spot. Jana brings it back down with ’CPU’'s computer noises and sub bass hits. ‘Chill Mode’ gives time for reflection after all that fire, but its no ambient track, theres still that Chi-Town vibe. We finish with ‘Frenetic Snare’ whose Amen breaks will have Brits thinking of jungle, but it's a different beast altogether.
