178. Aphex Twin
Known on his birth certificate as Richard James, Aphex Twin had received the high praise of being called one of the most influential and innovative figures in contemporary Electronic music.  The high acclaim was earned as Aphex Twin pushed the envelope of Acid and Ambience and took the Electronic genre to places never before thought.  The question (as with many other Electronic based performers) is whether the Hall will ever choose to recognize this musical style.
