Introducing Jango Band Central



We just released a new section on Jango for showcasing Airplay Artists – Jango Band Central – that makes it easier for our listeners to explore and listen to emerging artists.

Jango Band Central's main features:

  • Stations that play popular airplay artists in different genres. These are updated weekly and play the most popular airplay bands from the previous week. For example, Top 100 Independent, Top Hip Hop, Top R&B, etc.
  • The ability to browse emerging artists. For example, listeners can find Country bands from Texas or Hip Hop artists from France and listen to these bands quickly and easily.

We hope that Jango Band Central gives all of you more exposure and more fans. As always, we want to hear what you think – so drop your feedback in the comment section below.


Thanks for being part of Jango Airplay!

WOW omg this is perfect. Long overdue and amazing to browse. I'm beating that database up, searching for all sorts of genres and locations. That's really nice. Love the progress!

I applaud your team for not being satisfied with the status quo and continually looking at your company and its "services" in new and creative ways.

that's a good start to the future jango but i think what needs to happen for the independent artist to take over the game is well lets go back to the beginning jango came into the game and gave the indi artist a chance to get heard and its a good thing now jango is a number 1 top 10 station and now if you look at the record industry there is only one way the are winning is they have radio stations that play there music all over the world that one station has lets say 250,000 people listing to that station at a time so when jay z is heard 250,000 people hear it right away so if the indi artist had this kind of numbers listing every time our song is played we can become a major factor just like the majors and jango can break the chain and give us the indi a chance to get heard by so many listeners at a time what i suggest is a station being played all the time were we can have this chance to get our music stream to so many listeners at one time and the indi artist will go from minor to major with jango leading the pack iheart radio has something like this but once again its corporations so the indi artist can have no part of this but jango can change this format and do something to help the indi artist really get heard and jango will be the forefront to the future of music radio station

Can we get more detail? Also more detailed info of pop score would be awesome! Is 82 pop score mean 82nd percentile? What's average? What's top bands pop score? What's bottoms?

'Bollywood' encompasses a vast range of music styles but brings them into one 'genre' because it has the language in common with all the different styles.An Artist like the up and coming 'Qasim Munir' who has enjoyed tremendous benefit from Jango would be able to target his audience much better if there was a genre called 'Bollywood' under which he and others like him can better sell themselves. Whereas, as currently, under 'pop' there is more miss than hit of the target for him.

On "Jango Band Central" my number of fans shows as 506. On my Control Panel it shows as 487. Why the difference? Which is correct?

where did it go???

2 days ago, I pressed the link above and jango band central started up, and it blew my mind. I listened all day long. Today the link takes me to an absolutely blank page with no music playing... what up??

OUTSTANDING!!! And you shared the PopScores, EXCELLENT!!! I'm very impressed Jango - this is a very welcome surprise. As an independent artist in an ocean of independents, this gives us each a chance to see who else is playing within our genre, region and how the fans have perceived our music via PopScore.

However, a bug? - When I sort by Popularity, I assumed you would sort by PopScore (high to low). I saw some of that ranking but also saw several very low scores (and no scores) mixed in the list. Is that intentional? I recommend you do NOT do that to keep the list clean - instead, have a criteria such as "Newest" or "PopScore Pending" ...

Keep up the innovative spirit Jango - you're great but you have a lot of competition.
