Karlheinz Stockhausen = thread.

While his work was incredibly dense and still is, those who at least semi-penetrated his offerings went on to do great things, and took the electronic music movement to a whole new level.

Don Caballero (the original math rock band)
Kayo Dot (and all related groups. Especially Toby's solo project)
Zs (NOISE JAZZ!)
Extra Life (avant-rock band that focuses on the rock more than the avant.)
Aphex Twin (NOBODY CAN ARGUE WITH THIS.)
Autechre (listen to V-Proc. If you can't see how well the intelligent-hip-hop-glitch thing works here, I'm going to personally come to your house and lecture you.)

David Bowie should be one of the front runners on this one.

Stockhausen can:

Quote:
"I heard the piece Aphex Twin of Richard James carefully: I think it would be
very helpful if he listens to my work Song Of The Youth, which is electronic
music, and a young boy's voice singing with himself. Because he would then
immediately stop with all these post-African repetitions, and he would look
for changing tempi and changing rhythms, and he would not allow to repeat
any rhythm if it were varied to some extent and if it did not have a
direction in its sequence of variations."
Karlheinz Stockhausen: Advice to clever children...

I don't necessarily agree with him, I just thought it was interesting...

Maybe on the list but with guys like Edgard Varese, and John Cage, I don't think he'd be a front-runner.
