    Hard choice to make with the exception of Justice...

    I went with the Brothers because out of all the acts I've caught up there, (all except Future Sounds) they were the only ones that I remember the most of. Their track Midnight Madness is one of my personal favorites. I haven't heard if they'll be around the L.A. area any time soon, but I'd catch them again..

Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk, Fatboy Slim, Moby and the rest of the track-by-track pretend album DJs were responsible for bringing electronic music to car commercials. Fuck em. Moby was better when he was suicidal. Call me whatever you will, but the legendary mix albums of the mid to late 90s brought real electronic music, and the scene, out of the swamps.

    That said, I fucking hate trance....and that pyramid was pretty neat.

    Oh, and AT was by far and wide one of the absolute innovators of electronic music. Ricard D James is like the Velvet Underground of EDM.

    By best I assume you mean "Who sold the most albums"...judging by the poll list. You forgot about the troopers who've been rocking since back in the day and innovating all along. Icey, Irene, Ron D Core, Ronni Size, Diesel Boy, Bad Boy Bill...all innovators...and wayyyyyyyy better than anything on that poll...
    agree 100 percent, but here in denver, instead of warehouses somewhere downtown for the raves, a lot of the shows were in the mountains .. thats kinda funny, but yes, what he said ...x****

    Lol Basement Jaxx has zero votes. They aren't THAT bad I don't think. They have one good album out there....sort of. I mean it guest stars JC Chasez so that's a little wei-...yeah zero votes.

    Underworld... great, but not the best. Daft Punk... great, but not the best at all. The Prodigy, fucking phenominal, but not the best. Justice, um, get over yourselves. No one will care in 5 years.

    People it is The Chemical Brothers. They have continued to evolve and make some of the best electronica music the world has ever heard. You can listen to their albums all the way through and never get bored. They have collaborated with some of the best bands and musicians out there and continue to put on some of the most energetic and mind blowing lives shows all over the world. Do your homework and get out of the basement. The Chemical Brothers are and will always be the best.

    i prolly would've voted for fatboy slim if i bothered to look at the results and saw that he only had one vote, whereas daft punk have like a bajillion.
    that being said, i voted for daft punk.

    I'd have to say it's a tie between Underworld and Daft Punk.
    Where's Underworld and Mew? Make it happen GV.

    lol

    Maybe you should do your own homework and listen to EDM outside of whatever Big Beat was popular in the 90s?

    I voted DP out of this choices, Aphex Twin was a close second. That poll kind of sucks, though.

    As for my vote... I'd almost say Aphex Twin, but I can't choose between RDJ, the Chem Bros, Daft Punk and Fatboy Slim.

    A lot of people should realize that it wasn't just the Chem Bros but Fatboy Slim who helped popularize electronic music way back when.

    Can someone recommend some good Future Sound of London, Underworld, and The Orb material?? If it helps narrow down what I might like, my favorite electronic music is Aphex.. Pretty much everything he's done is brilliant. Favorite electronic album is the Chem Bro's "Dig Your Own Hole". I don't know, I just don't wannt dig around through all these bands' material.

    just torrent discographies of each of them, and put the discog on shuffle. if you don't like what you hear, hit skip.

    just (for example) google "future sound of london discography torrent"

    I still can't stress this enough. all of these "who is BEST" or "who was the BEST" polls are 100% pointless and shortbus-retarded. like....

    agh. I've posted this before, but this is what you all seem like when you vote on these things:

    I actually have the 45 record of Underneath the Radar. It took me a while to realize that it was the same Underworld (yes I'm old!).

    And I agree with an earlier poster - The Shamen were very influential.

    Underworld "Dubnobasswithmyheadman" and "Second Toughest in the Infants" are my favorites. The Orb "Little Fluffy Clouds" is classic. I saw one of the best shows ever - the Orb at the Orpheum in San Francisco 1995-ish. Leftfield's album is amazing too if you are looking into expanding your musical horizons. Happy listening!

    ps - I can't pick one from this list I prefer others.

    It's definitely Fatboy Slim. He is not my favorite but he is the most influential electronic artist in the past 15 years

    ? how so? who did he influence? I like him but wouldn't consider him the most influential, there are loads of other artists who could claim that.
