    Obviously, electric dance had been on the rise since the 70's, but these was the pioneers of electronic dance music in the 90's which really boosted that music genre to mainstream in my opinion.

    My favourite has got to be the Prodigy. But anyway, here's some tunes of all listed:

    Nice to see some Prodigy in there.



    'Lords Of Acid' deserve a mention as well.

    Hard to choose. At the time, I was listening to The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers more, but more recently I've gotten really into Autechre.

    This track, one of my favourites of theirs, is from 1995.

    I remember those songs, more house though in my opinion.

    Great contribution, love Autechre.



    Also, Leftfield were great as well.

    lol don't know how I left out Moby to be honest, if I'd had remembered, he'd definitely be in the poll. Thanks.

    Autechre and Aphex Twin and it's not even close. There was some nice ambient as well, like Pete Namlook and his projects (owner of Fax Records), Higher Intelligence Agency, Biosphere, Omikron and all those guys from Instinct Ambient.
    My favorite is in fact Boards of Canada. Although they formed in the 80's, they started releasing albums in the 90's.

    I can't pick, all of those have brought so much into electronic music. PvD's For an Angel got me into electronic music as a kid and I've never looked back. Chemical Brothers is one of my all time favorites and I'd say it's one of the most listened band/act for me. Prodigy is, well Prodigy. Good list, everyone of those options have their own distinct style, which makes choosing even harder. I could go on on, so I'll add something.

    Went with The Prodigy, and I expect them to win the poll, but Massive Attack is a close second for me. Mezzanine is one of the GREATEST ALBUMS OF ALL TIME!





    (not from Mezzanine but one of my favorites)

    Can't decide between Aphex and Prodigy.

    As far as bands, I think The Prodigy, Underworld and Orbital are top of the list. Best track launched in the nineties though, would have to be:
