I really like Kloquewurk, great carry, and not too long and drawn out. I can listen to that all day. I haven't really found anything to complain about except that I want to hear more.
Also liked Chaotic Pulse, epic melodies. And the GBSR Mattt remix, that one is SICK. Surprising turns in the beat, good levels, all around fatness. And GBSR is just right up my alley anyways. So yeah. I really don't know where to complain about any of it.

Permujizzm, Synaecide, The Get, Hellscion, Halogen, ZXYZXY (RIP), a few other ones... I feel like I just jumped into the middle of this giant circle jerk and like a midget at a urinal I'm really going to have to stay on my toes..
To be honest I haven't really gotten time to listen to much from everyone else but from what I've heard: Candle, Perm, Hellscion, Keef Baker, and Evelon have the best. Also, I don't remember his username, but Endif is/was on this forum I believe, so him too.
Synaecide: Manifestations is probably one of my favorite albums. Period. There isn't a song on there that I don't like. When this guy does heavy, dark DnB he really outdoes himself, but his more upbeat work (The Getaway, for instance) is just as outstanding.
Perm/Junglism: Always very well produced music. Very unique, but as much of a breakcore buff as I am, I find myself drawn more to Perm's side projects because he writes hauntingly beautiful melodies when he takes some time out from torn-up breaks and growling basslines.
Bubbleeconomy: Haven't head much of his recent stuff, but I've always loved his tracks. They all feel very polished, and his drum programming is excellent. I sometimes feel as if his music could use a bit more progression, but on the other hand, it almost feels like the elongation of one or two ideas is part of his musical style.
The Televisitor: Doesn't always write the kind of music that I usually to listen to, but when he does it's dead on. I love listening to this guy mash up samples.
Grammar: He says nice things and I like getting my ego rubbed.
J/k. He wouldn't be up here if I didn't think his work was spectacular. Grammar has got some seriously unique and interesting sound going on. Each track seems to take one idea and explore it for 2-3 minutes, but he makes sure to keep it interesting and engaging the whole way through, and he doesn't seem to limit himself to any particular style. His melodies make me think of Wisp and Plaid, but I really can't think of anything to compare his percussion to.
Evelon: Everything this guy does shines. He is more than proficient at writing in a multitude of musical styles, and he does absolutely amazing things with Buzz.
Chaotic Pulse: Chaotic Pulse's music definitely has a distinctive sound. You can really tell that he's comfortable with his production techniques. I don't think I've ever heard a tune of his that I didn't like.
Altered Tensions: Yet another forum member with top-notch production skills. This guy's music always feels so full and complex. I've yet to hear anyone that can manipulate the stereo field quite the way he does.
There are many more, but these are the ones that immediately come to mind. IDMF is too much a fountain of talent to list all of my favorite artists in one sitting.

Reason: How would I not end up editing such a long post?
Hmmm..... that's tough. Well, the people I was a fan of before I/they joined the forums, of course, like Keef Baker and Endif, and Tapage, who I discovered from reading the Tympanik Audio site and saying, "Why does that name sound familar?" and noticed he was a forum member, I've got those guys CDs and love them, and they're always on heavy play.
Team Project5, of course (which is pretty much :10:, ReWir3d, and eOnic), I was a fan of :10: before the forums, and I have a bunch of his music that I listen to all the time, because it's f'n brillant. He was also how I was introduced to Project5. He sure knows how to make a fucking beat that shatters you. The very big con to :10: is well, his slight insecurity about his music, for one thing, but also, and perhaps more importantly, is that he doesn't live far away at all, and he refuses to play live.
Also, a big thing I have to note about ReWir3d, is that the guy just keeps getting better so, so, f'n fast. Every second he's so exponentally better than he was it's just incredible.
I actually like a lot of the music I hear on here though. Probably the forum with the highest concentration of talent on the entire interwebs.
Anyhow, back to the topic, I really have been listening to alot of Vulpes work since we're doing a track together and I'm so impressed by his melodic layers, breakdowns and general progression tactics that I find myself hooked in early on and not being let go.
