Let's try something: describe what you are looking for when listening to music, but only in words. No genre or artist indication. Feelings, atmosphere, type of vocals if any, instruments, anything!
If you have any thing that you really DON'T want to hear tell me too.
Then I'll give you a few suggestions of things I like that correspond (for me) to the criteria you gave, trying to be eclectic in my choices.
May not work (and I will not get at all pissed if you think it's all shit) but it may help you refine what is important for you in order to like a specific music.
I can't guarantee I can do that very well, depending on how much we have in common in term of basic expectations, but maybe if I can't someone else will be able to do it.
