The Knife
Flashbulb
Caribou
DJ Shadow (not new, but should have been mentioned)

My favorite techno artists include Richie Hawtin, Magda, Ambivalent, Dubfire, and Ricardo Villalobos. Anything on the M-nus label is ubergroovy.

Just a plug for the real old school electronic music artists

Walter / Wendy Carlos was one of the true pioneers of this genre
Roger Powell was a great early contributor as well

This list is seriously lacking in electronic and dance artists. There needs to be a separate list for electronic music. The only name that jumped out at me was Aphex Twin, which is hardly even scratching the surface. Artists that should be included:

Air
Autechre
Boards of Canada
Daft Punk
Justice (I realize they're relatively new, but I think they're worth mentioning)
M83
Thievery Corporation
Zero 7

I'm sure others could come up with a more comprehensive list, but I think that's a good start.
