Some artists you might be interested in: m-flo, Bennie K, Ketsumeishi(a unique mix of rock and hip-hop influences, qutie popular in japan, I highly recommend their fifth album), DJ Ozma (does quite a bit of Korean music covers, not to mention he's flashy :P ), Miliyah Kato, Crystal Kay, MINMI, Lecca (a bit reggae) and Namie Amuro (check out 'Play' and 'Queen of Hip-Pop' albums).

click my siggie (Flavah of the Week) for some Japanese rnb/hip hop suggestions..the majority of the artist there i was introduced to @ JPM..you should join there for some good J-Urban artists.

i give brief descriptions of the artists bio, style etc. with newest release info, and a streaming video link so you can hear/listen and go from there. :)

For 'friendly' J Rock try:

Mr. Children

Kinki Kids

Plastic Tree

Mika Nakashima (more pop, but I love "Sakura iro..." and "Glamorous Sky")

The Pillows

For jrock I would recommend:


Abingdon Boys School

Bump of Chicken


they're jrock but not 'scary' at all. SID used to be visual kei, but they're not anymore. And the music is awesome too :)

For RnB/pop/Urban:

Emi Hinouchi


Crystal Kay

id have to recommned Gackt. Hes a lead vocals of the group mentioned above-- Malice Mizer

Hes jrock, and may look scary, but its actually really good. in my opinion. hes currently all i listen to, even though im not japanese. Im richard simmons, so its a little different.

If you like anime, "metamorphoze" had something to do with gundam, or something like that. i forget.

If you rpg, "redemption" and "longing" were featured as the theme songs on Final Fantasy 7: Dirge of Cerberus (where he also features as the next and final boss of Final Fantasy: Crisis Core)

If you like ballads, "last song" is really nice. its uber sad if you read the lyrics though

so yah

and hes hot


have fun

I like L`Arc~en~Ciel they're not the super scary bloody type of jrock band XD And Gackt :3 He's good too!

I like Koda Kumi's music it's really RnB & Hip Hop
