Bonobo was the first electronic music artist that didn't make Techno / Electro I listened to. But I was like 14-15 and wasn't really aware of the whole IDM genre and the sub-genres.
AFX was the first IDM artist I listened to (the famous things, "Come to Daddy", "Windowlicker" of course) knowing it was IDM. Not so long after I started getting into Autechre and Squarepusher wich a friend of mine introduced me to a few years ago.

I first heard an idm song from some bedroom producer on newgrounds, thought it was rad as fuck, but didn't know what genre it was.
I found out about idm as a genre much later, and dug into aphex twin first.
