I know Aphex Twin, Autechre, etc are the founders, but Proem is the best I've ever heard in this realm of music.

I am so soooooooo thankful for having been able to experience this guy's music. I cannot describe it with words, his music has changed my life profoundly. And kept my mind clear, to date. Thank you Richard, I really hope that even though one day you will say farewell to sound production, it won't be anytime soon.
