Seefeel are one of my favourite 90s bands, and I got to see them live for the first time recently as they reformed and played at the ICA.
I've never heard any band/artist create ambient textures anywhere near as luscious or genuinely breathtaking as Seefeel - search out their 'Quique' and 'Polyfusia' albums, you'll see what I mean. Their live show is equally as fascinating as their sound - using a traditional band set up of two guitars, bass and drums to create otherworldly electronic music that is as inspired by techno and dub as it is by shoegaze and the Cocteau Twins, without a single keyboard synth or drum machine sequencer in sight.
