Most important electronic music labels?

I thought it might be interesting to compile a list of important, influential, or otherwise noteworthy record labels associated with electronic listening music. Aside from the super-obvious ones, I am reminded of Mille Plateaux, Sending Orbs, Schematic, Ghost Box, Rastor Noton, Benbecula, and Audiobulb recordings. What others (both past and current) have been integral to the development of this art form?

It depends on the genre of music you listen to. But here is a brief list of important ones, off the top of my head...

Warp Records (obviously)
Touch (one of the most powerful and respected independent labels)
Domino
Fangbomb
Merck (it has been out of operation for a few years, but played an important role in developing the American IDM scene)

Re: Most important electronic music labels?

Here is a start with some links. I've just started researching this myself. I hope this is helpful and serves to inspire others to add to the list or to check out some new music.

Re: Most important electronic music labels?

Is there a way to make this a collective post, so we can all add to the same list?

Re: Most important electronic music labels?

Adding to the ones below...

NovaMute - particularly for Speedy J / Luke Slater
!K7 - Funkstörung
Musik Aus Strom - Crunch / Aemic / Funkstörung
Soma - Black Dog / Slam
R&S - SpeedJack / CJ Bolland

Difficult to pin down - as labels releasing a very broad spectrum of music sometimes just have one amazing IDM / Electronic artist.
