Jana Rush follows up 2021’s intense masterpiece “Painful Enlightenment” with a new mini-album “Dark Humor”.
This 7-track release continues where she left off, opening with a new nine-minute remix of last year’s groundbreaking ‘Suicidal Ideation’ subtitled ‘Aural Hallucinations’, an almost nightmare-inducing, woozy journey across fractured beats and pulsing bass with percussive sound effects fluttering across the stereo field. Another highlight is the jazz-infused ‘Lonely’ made with DJ Paypal, where they let loose on a horn sample for six minutes of syncopated ecstasy. Jana also returns to ‘Break It’, remixing the classic footwork track from her debut album ‘Pariah’ on Objects Limited, giving it a more laidback, half-time feel.
The remaining tracks are all new compositions with Jana concentrating on a more manic, dancefloor-focused style with punchy, panicked vocals, hip-hop beats and humorous, self-effacing samples, all amounting to a worthy follow-up to one of the most innovative releases of last year.
