Jungle/Drum and bass also goes for the UK.
So yeah, UK 'wins' in most electronic music genres. But to say they 'have kinda always made better music than us in almost every genre--except rap,' is very arguable.
Good thing many UK producers are moving to the US, though. So hopefully that will open a bigger market for new stuff, and we will have our own bang face festival.
You're the bitch that ran right to Google, by the way.
Off the top of my head, I would say:
Dntel (although his last album suuuuuucked)
Single Cell Orchestra
There are a couple of others that I think might be from the US, but I am not sure. I have a couple of others that might be classified as IDM by some, but I wouldn't put them in that category so I left them out.
My UK list would quadruple that.

Also, seriously--are we ignoring The Baron Of Fucking Techno?
Are we going to claim Chicago house as winning house for the 90s too? Just saying. =)
We didn't rule it in the decade we're talking about, idiot.
dude lastgreatman, you argue so much. on the internet.
im down with just popping in every few pages and poking fun at you. not really about anything you're actually saying, cause i don't wanna read all that shit. and by the sheer volume and consistency of your posts in this thread alone, i will assume you might know a thing or two (and admittedly more than myself) about electronic music, most likely in that annoying holier than thou way that kills the party every time. and thats cool. but seriously, you're arguing a lot. on the internet.
then ill go back to myspace and touch up my beard. send me a pm when you get your congratulatory plaque.... for something.

My picks would be Dave Clarke, Surgeon, Ben Sims, Regis.. Dave the drummer? British murder boys? Hawtin is canadian but grew in the UK. Anyway, they are really great techno acts, but I still think they can't top the US. Spain has a great techno scene as well.
I forgot Proem in the suggested US idm artists.
I'll readily admit that I know very little about electronic music, so I try to stay out of arguments like this. Keep going for the jugular; I love watching people argue.
