Let's start with the master himself, Stephane Grappelli, who died in 1997 at the grand age of 89 years. So many examples of his playing are available, but this is a wicked blues number. How about some 70's prog rock jamming with the Dixie Dregs or check out this fiddle solo from the Mahavishnu Orchestra.
Now, Hip-hop is not usually associated with violin but Paul Dateh is brilliant and musical. See for example his collaboration with inka one. Or for layered use of violin tracks and percussion, see Taylor Rankin in action, who loves his reggae. There is also the virtuoustic side, often using electric violin in metal or hard rock covers, if that is for you, then see Ed Alleyne-Johnson. I also tracked down a different style again in the Mahogany Sessions (worth checking out themselves) in acoustic violinist and vocalist Marques Toliver. Or our own Kiwi violinist Andrew Keoghan. Finally, to come full circle it is worth including the other great master Yehudi Menuhin playing a favourite of mine - Beethoven's violin concerto, 2nd movement. Hope all of those links work, I claim no rights to any of the recorded material, just sharing the love... By the way, I should acknowledge the violin that I have been privileged to be the guardian of for the past 28 years, which was made in 1840, the same year as the Treaty of Waitangi was signed. 'Til next time.
