|Also, while reading moreso about the Belleville Three, I came across DJ Charles "The Electrifying Mojo" Johnson. In addition to helping "break" several artists into the Detroit radio market (i.e. Prince, Kraftwerk, the B-52's), he's been cited as an influence for the Belleville Three among other techno artists and disc jockeys. |
This guy may be another one to keep on the radar when thinking of non-performers.
Also, as a sidenote, I think Popol Vuh, whom we've discussed before, may fit best into the influences category and should also be a consideration.

|That's what I thought. Honestly Moby and Daft Punk are probably the two most well known 90's electronic acts to the causal public honestly. Although obviously that's not the only thing that makes Moby a worthwhile inductee. As his first self-titled album, "Everything is Wrong," and "Play" are albums so good they should get Moby inducted alone.|

I agree on Moby definitely (he's probably my favorite of the uninducted electronic acts) although I feel like Fatboy Slim was right up there with the two of them for a while in regards to the general public. While the Chemical Brothers seem to be next in line, I'd probably follow them up with Moby & Fatboy Slim and then the Prodigy, the Crystal Method, Aphex Twin, and more.
Frankie Knuckles also had a decent showing in the Non-Performer category and the Belleville Three made an appearance as well. I think we, as a voting body, are slowly but surely edging our way closer to recognizing more electronic acts.
