I love Streetlight Manifesto (ska-punk), Bob Marley, started listening to Peter Tosh.
So with reggae and ska I have something in mind to search through similar artists service, only if you can tell some extremely good bands or interesting genres like reggae metal it would be super nice.
What is really bothering me is that I cannot find any funk and jazz artists with a good sound (good instrumentals are the top priority for me).
What the Internet is offering me are "good old" artists, but I want something new and with a good melody (The Hatters for example. They are not exactly funk or jazz band but I hope you can see the analogy)
I am open to all suggestions, I bet I can offer you something interesting according to your taste if you suggest something interesting for me :)
