I don't know if I listen to a particular type, but I'll try to answer with what limited knowledge I have. I think Ska is alright, but more of the classic, jazz influenced ska. I'm not big on the punk sound that came around in the 70's. Dancehall, as I understand it, is really a club music where Reggaeton originated from (of which I have a huge library I never even listen to) and it's really not my type.

I would say, based on the stuff that comes up on Pandora that I like, my preference is for Roots and also Dub type sounds. I especially like super fat, thick and hazy sound of dub. Afro-dub is interesting, it's kinda like jazzier dub, percussion heavy sound with the dancehall, dem-bow thing going.

I have a huge collection of electronic music that spans pretty much most of the genre but a decent portion of it is deep house, ambient trance, psy etc. you can really hear the dub influence in it. I suppose that and some of the old funk/soul type music that Hip-Hop samples is where I identify with dub music.

You don't have to go to any lengths to really put together anything comprehensive for me, though I do appreciate the offer. Just if you know anything off the top of your head. Thanks for the recommendations, everyone. I'm almost off 70 hour weeks so I will have a chance to actually listen soon!
