Is there a music discovery service that cycles through songs quickly?

I am looking for a music discovery service like Pandora and Last.fm that satisfies the following criteria:
(1) By default, only plays short snippets of songs (e.g. 30 seconds).
(2) Suggests any given song only once.
Reason (1) because I dislike most songs, and I can usually tell within seconds whether I'll like a song. With Pandora & Last.fm, I have to keep manually skipping to the next song. Also, Pandora limits the # of songs I can skip in a channel. Reason (2) because if I like it I'll download/buy it. Pandora & Last.fm, on the other hand, play "liked" songs frequently.
Other services I have already checked out:
Is there a service that will let me sit back and listen to many short snippets of songs, and allow me to note songs that I like? Learning from my likes & dislikes would be a plus. In effect this would be "speed dating" for music.
Additional info: I mainly like underground hip-hop, and some rock.
