Sound design(I guess you could call it that):
King Tubby
Lee Perry

Synth playing: (Though not a keyboard):
Merzbow. He makes some crazy-ass noises with the suitcase version of the VCS3.

Electronic/industrial stuff:
I like the first download album better than skinny puppy, personally.

Joe Zawinul Rules rules universe of synth legends. The guy does it like no other, he manages to make synths sound like new acoustic instruments with his use of expression and performance neuances.

The guy has chops and was one of the earliest players to work with synths.

He's the man !

Bernie Worrell, Allen Ravenstine, Eno and his collaborations.
But mostly Andy, my brother- He's been ahead of the curve since he was 4 years old.
