lookin for catchy-rear end funk-jazz in the vein of Skerik's Syncopated Taint Sextet, TIA

I dunno how funk-jazz and catchy-rear end that is having listened to some of that, because it sounds very like... not dirty, but it's not a "clean" sound if you get what I mean. With that in mind I'd recommend Jaga Jazzist and Snarky Puppy.

Adjacent recommendations meandering off into whatever:

Could someone recommend me a couple grime records? I remember checking out some artists like 5 or so years ago, but the only one that's still in my player is Ghetts. Although I appreciate his earlier releases, "the calm before the storm" mixtape is close to perfect balance of bars and danciness to me, so I'd appreciate records with similar vibes.

Weird request but what are some songs with dirty rear end sax? Like Let Me Clear My Throat or the Matlock theme. Not silky sexy sax like Careless Whisper. Any genre is fine but I'd prefer some non-jazz options.

Any number of songs by Little Richard ought to have a saxophone solo like that in them. As far as artists go, I think King Curtis might be a good bet.

If you're not mad about chaotic jazz stomp, there's always the dirty rock sax. Although it's rarely the core of the songs like in your examples.

I've been really into Erik Friedlander's compositions for the film Thoroughbreds, and would love any artists, albums or tracks that are similar.

"Finding Mom"
"Cycle Treachery"
"Thoroughbred"
"Taking Tim Down"
"Win Win"

Thanks for the recommendations everyone. Just starting to sort through them, I'll update with thoughts on everything recommended.

One more request if you don't mind. Another weird one that's a bit tough to describe. The legend of the mermaid is that they'd sing an alluring song to tempt sailors to abandon ship to come to them (and drown in the process). Looking for that song. Hypnotic, alluring, sexy, a dark undertone. Probably the best examples I've found are This Mortal Coil - Song to the Siren and Holden & Thompson - Come to Me

actually covers this topic lyrically, being sort of dangerous to follow, and I like their use of reverb and sliding between notes for this

Okay, hard synth with female vocals, sure

To start, this is the earliest example I can think of for what Electric Girl sounds like to me, though it does not have female vocals, TaQ - schlagwerk
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYffhzxBusc

But you could go even earlier than that if you wanna get into some 90's poo poo, Future Sound of London - We Have Explosive
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xc9l7pygQRo

For more voice, less hard, with female vocals, Sneaky Sound System - I Want Everything
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnGtYP--w0k

For even more voice, even less hard, but more stabby synth, Capsule - I Wish You
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYj0_dufXBk

Note that in the earlier 2000's, Capsule's sound was much more happy, which I assume was alleviated by Yasutaka Nakata producing for Kyary Pamyu Pamyu on top of his existing work with Perfume, so if you go that route, look at their later albums.

There's this French duo that has similarly rough, stabby synth, but leans towards more funky poo poo instead of just being crunchy, Jupiter - Mama Used To Say
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJxPPWVL_zk

But this is the poo poo I think you actually want, Machinedrum - Do It 4 U

There's a world to explore in the "big band" genre, and you can pretty much just punch that into any music service and run down a list hitting thumbs up on the poo poo that fits, but my favorite pure fun song out there in an adjacent sound has got to be Bubbles In The Wine by Lawrence Welk. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UA0Ysptf5l4

Check out some Raymond Scott. If any of it sounds familiar, it would likely be Looney Tunes or Ren and Stimpy. He didn't write music for those shows but his songs were used heavily in the episodes.

Hey man it's good to have stuff work out so cool. Unfortunately I don't know tooooo much about that particular sound and I pretty much chalk it up as an Ed Banger Records thing. I was considering other recommendations, but they were not nearly as "hard" or whatever. However, if you feel like going deeper into that rabbit hole of choppy electronic that is relatively very soft, but still heavily "produced," I personally would look at Japan in the late 90's/early 2000's. Japan has a lot to offer with that. Some prominent examples of that sound here, keeping in mind that I know that these songs aren't nearly as heavy as the last post, but hey maybe you want something related but relatively light:

Takako Minekawa - Plash
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57LboHngkn4

Takako Minekawa is mostly recognized for being the voice of the "PUREISUTEISHON" sort of robot voiceover for the old Playstation commercials.

m-flo (specifically producer Taku Takahashi) featuring Chops and Bahamadia - Expo Expo
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBtpQjy7iPo

Taku Takahashi is pretty drat prolific and catches onto whatever the style of the time is while using choppy techniques quite a bit. Expo Expo is from 2001, and m-flo is still going today despite losing their vocalist for multiple albums. Rather than sitting idle, they just subbed in collab vocalists for 3 entire albums of collaborations, with each song suiting the style of whoever they were working with on that song. He often performs as a solo DJ for raves or whatever.

His 2002 remix of Utada Hikaru's "Distance" is the earliest example I personally know of for chopping up vocals to make new melodies. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAdKepqYzzQ

Cymbals - Higher Than The Sun
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LExi3fMODyU

This is gonna be the biggest departure, I think, but I like it. This is off the album "sine" which I assume is a reference to being so much more synth-based than their other albums. Cymbals broke up in 2003, and while the 3 of them went on to success in their own ways, the sound mainly lived on through Toki Asako, the lead singer, who still makes "light and happy" kinds of music with a bouncy electronic feel.

Another DJ to look into maybe would be Towa Tei, who you'd know as the DJ for Deee-lite, known for Groove Is In The Heart, and who kept working and collaborating with the likes of Kylie Minogue and Bebil Gilberto.
