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,

    Could you make some sort of distinction between christian and nonchristian music please? I'm a christian and I am not comfortable (nor am I allowed) to listen to nonchristian music.

    Could you make some sort of distinction between satanic and nonsatanic music please? I'm a satanist and I am not comfortable (nor am I allowed) to listen to nonsatanic music.

    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.

    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.

    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. regards, beni
