Pandora Podcast #13: Electronic Dance Music

Hello everybody. The Pandora Podcast Series is heading over to the discotheque for a spell. Lace up and hydrate.
The new show went up this morning, and our guest is downtempo producer and percussionist Chris Horgan. Chris and his Beatropolis bandmates play live versions of House, Trance and Techno beats, and we discuss studio recordings by Cubase Dan, Debroglie and Nepenthe. We delineate the musical elements that define the House sound, hear the crescendos specific to Trance, and parse out the dry minimalism and African drumming roots of Techno. Whether you’re intimately familiar with electronic dance music or not, there’s something in it for you. Chris, by the way, is a native of the great state of Florida.
Go directly to Episode 13 here, or head over to the main podcast page to see and hear all of these free shows.
Chris and I will be checking the comments section frequently, so fire away if you’ve got anything for us.
Thoomp thoomp thoomp thoomp,


The Pandora Team

    Thanks again

  7. SOOOO LOVE the NEW Pandora. everything about it is great. The music-the everything. Haven’t been in await that’s why it’s such a surprise! WOW!!!!! I’ll never leave again!!!!!! Thank you so much for the great music!!! Music is my life!!!!

Tell all your friends, PANDORA is the ONLY way to go!!!

  9. A (much younger) friend just showed me your site, and of course we began designing a game using Pandora. We figure someone gets to pick the first artist, but they must name the first song by title to continue to “control” the next selection. You can get a “point” for artist or title, but if someone else guesses before you, they get to add a second artist. If nobody knows the artist or song, it can be skipped, unless of course it’s good stuff! Haven’t tried playing yet, but I’m sure your listeners will get the idea! Pandora is good stuff.

  10. hey this great but i’d really like it if there was a better way to listen to the snogs that i know and want to listen to not just the ones that a simalur…and i understnd why you can’t do that but you should try and find out something to do about it?!?!?!?!?!
    e-mail back plzz

  11. Thanks for the propers, folks!
    Hi, Hunter,
    What you’re asking for is a pay-for-play service, which isn’t really what we do. Our free radio player links to iTunes and to Amazon, where you can purchase the specific songs you want.
    We’re glad you’re listening, though, and hopefully your radio stations will play both songs you know and love and other songs that may surprise you.

  12. dear pandora,
    why did you have to block users from outside of europe so effectively. a looking-good-blocking which could have cracked by the simple use of a proxy would have done it. you wouldn’t have problems with the major labels anymore and i could listen to pandora by a simple technical change.

  13. Hey ya’ll, I just came back from Bahrain a tiny island country in between Qatar and Saudi,
    Lots of people love pandora
    much love
