In agreement with the first 4 posts, there's also some good (relatively) new artists:
The Knife
DJ Shadow (not new, but should have been mentioned)
Massive Attack (does trip-hop count? not new either)

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

The Presets -- the best!

Check out Plastikman, a.k.a. Richie Hawtin, Sutekh, Tiefschwarz, Pete Namlook, Goldfrapp, and Sven Vath. Seriously. Enjoy!

Most influential classics:

Tangerine Dream

For others let's wait 10 years then we'll see.

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:

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

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