BEATPORT AND SIRUSXM LAUNCH PITCH CONTROL
4/8/20

Beatport and SiriusXM have recently joined forces to launch the new weekly radio show Pitch Control: Powered by Beatport on BPM, SiriusXM’s electronic music channel. The premiere episode aired on 4/5 and will continue every Sunday at 8pm PST.

Hosted by Beatsource dance curator DJ Drew, a.k.a. Andrew Ortiz, the show features buzzing tracks in the electronic scene chosen by the platform’s curation team while taking into account real-time activity on Beatport’s streaming service, LINK.

“We are thrilled to enter into this music and broadcasting partnership with SiriusXM, one of the leading music destinations here in the US,” said Beatport CEO Robb McDaniels.

Ortiz will work closely with Beatport’s Berlin-based curation team, led by Raphael Pujoi (The Checkup), as well as SiriusXM's PD for BPM and Pitbull’s Globalization (ch. 13) Edwin Paredes (DJ Phenom), VP of EDM programming Geronimo and PD Rida Naser, who will also assist in overseeing this new project. Prior to hosting Pitch Control, Ortiz spent 20 years at KIIS FM in addition to his experience programming dance radio at Beatsource, a JV between Beatport and DJcity.
