From top of my head, Yoko Kanno

.......and as generic as some of his music turns out, Hiroyuki Sawano is pretty good. Yuki Kajiura is also great.

Agreed on Yasaharu Takanashi.
I'll add in Taku Iwasaki (Gurren Lagann, Ben-To, JoJo's Part 2)
And the team that does Space Dandy's music, pure greatness.

The Pillows - Fooly Cooly (Yeah, I know. It's still memorable though)
Yoko Kanno - Zankyou no Terror and Cowboy Bebop (Especially Cowboy Bebop)
Hiroyuki Sawano - Kill la Kill and Attack on Titan (Jumping on the bandwagon. I enjoyed AoT and KlK's soundtrack)
Ling Tosite Sigure - Psycho Pass

It all depends on your taste. My favorites are:
Macross Frontier (May'n and Megumi as Shryl and Ranka)
Angel Beats (Girls Dead Monster)
Guilty Crown (meh anime/great soundtrack) (Egoist)
Macross 7 (bad anime/great soundtrack) (Firebomber)

So far my favorite anime composers are Yasuharu Takanashi, Hiroyuki Sawano, and Kohei Tanaka

Jeff Williams made a pretty kickass soundtrack for RWBY (and he's still doing so), probably one of the best I've heard in a long time. And his daughter Casey has an amazing vocal range ^_^

Pretty much anything Sawano. I do love Zankyou no Terror's music as well. Yoko Kanno is the composer I believe. Shippuden's soundtrack is pretty good. The music in Space Dandy is just...euphoric. And...that's about all I can think of at this point. I'd have to go back watch some other shows to listen to the music.
