The Aggrolites are the punk-reggae band aren't they?

If so, I do believe your ears are broken.

They're a traditional reggae band with some funk and soul elements. They're not punk in even the slightest way. I'm not looking for reggae music though, I'm looking for anything funk or related to it that sounds something like the particular song I posted.

I've just discovered Black Talk by Charles Earland which is similar in a way... you might dig. Check rep.

Hey, i listen to a lot of almost anything, but at the moment, i'm specifically after jazz with an avant-garde twist and a really dark feel. I haven't come across anything like this, so i can't really give too many examples....but here are some tracks that are the closest i can think of....

ulver-lost in moments
Frank Zappa-G spot tornado
Massive attack-Sly
Kayo dot (most works)
Mr. bungle-Platypus

I realise this doesn't really narrow it down.....I kinda want something with a Sunn 0)))) feel (very ominous/dark) but done in a jazz context of some sort, any help appreciated thanks.

Also feel free to put in as much extra info on the artist as you wish eg. recommended albums, bio, why you like the artist, if you like this artist you'll probably like.....etc etc. Also state what genre the artist fits into.

Ok i'll start -

I'm a Soul Man
It's a Man's World

I know practically nothing about electronic music, so I'd like some music similar to Aphex Twin's Ambient works.

Great funk band

Hey, I was suring the old Myspace the other day--I found this really great funk band out of Toronto, Canada. They're called The Disease. I just bought their CD Patient 26185---great disco funk sound. So if your into that--check them out: www.myspace.com/drpayneandthedisease

Other great artists:
Mr. Sumthing Sumthing
God Made Me Funky

ENJOY!!!

I really like Keaton Simons, he's like John Mayer. He's going on a summer tour so I can't wait to see him and hopefully meet him.

Check out BTone23. Heres their myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/btone23

Dont really know what to compare them to...there are ambient moments (nothing like stone in focus though) but they usually flow into something else. Youd probably enjoy Royksopp as well, specifically melody in the a.m., its better than their new stuff. Either way, hope you enjoy.

Well, Ygwie is a virtuoso. But, Dragonforce, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Galloglass, Freedom Call, Dream Evil, Avantasia, Luca Turilli, Stratovarius, Rhapsody, Edguy, Evergrey, Gamma Ray, Symphony X or Demons and Wizards.

If you want truly epic metal, get a copy of [Secret of the Runes] by Therion.

In addition to the Mahavishnu stuff, John McLaughlin really shines on an album he did with Carlos Santana called Love Devotion Surrender. Check it out.
