For me, it's usually artist on certain labels in general, like Touch, Raster-Noton, 12k, etc. Artist: Biosphere, Hildur Gu­nadˇttir, Jˇhann Jˇhannsson, Alva Noto, Ryuchi Sakamoto, Scanner, Taylor Deupree or even more mainstream stuff like Carbon Based Lifeforms, Aes Dana, H.U.V.A. Network and old school like Tangerine Dream and some of the krautrock stuff like Popol Vuh (Oddly though, I have never been a Brian Eno fan. Bores me to tears).

Note that my interpretation of what constitutes 'ambient' is pretty broad...

+1 on these

Atom Heart/Uwe Schmidt, Pete Namlook & pretty much all artists ever released on Fax

Frank Bretschneider, Taylor Dupree, Ambient Temple of Imagination, some Banco de Gaia, Robert Rich, Steve Reich, Thomas Koener

love Alva Noto, Raster-Noton stuff, Ryoji Ikeda, COH, and Mokira, but that's not really ambient to me.

John Serrie
Steve Roach
Biosphere (not really always an ambient producer but did some incredible ambient tracks)

There's a guy on soundcloud called Carbonates on Mars I really like

Pretty much the usual suspects - Brian Eno, Steve Reich, Biosphere, some Orb. A lot of the ambient stuff I listen to, tends to be from links on forums or Soundcloud e.g. a guy called Nasoshnik, I've been listening to a lot and another called Pascal Doguet - both well worth checking out.

Jonsi & Alex, Tim Hecker, Nils Frahm.

James Holden, though I don't think he makes much ambient stuff, made the track Kearn, which is an all time favourite.

And for bonus points, John Hassell. He's some experimental jazz musician my Dad got me onto. Check out Last Night the Moon Came Down.

I'll list some specific tracks if that's ok. Artists I often listen to have an occasional ambient-like track I really like, but wouldn't call them 'ambient artists'

My favs:

Aphex Twin - Xtal
Aphex twin - analog bubble bath
Nathan fake - you are here
Tycho - a walk
Mogwai - Mogwai fear Satan (not actually electronic music but amazing)

;)

Human Mesh Dance is pretty good also as someone else said Steve Roach
