Sure, the (largely Rock-oriented) media will pick up on certain charismatic figures (say Goldie or UR or Derrick May or Aphex Twin) and turn them into figureheads but that's often contrary to their actual status within the scene's they come from. There's artists that sell shedloads of records within the house, techno, hardcore and dnb scenes who I'm sure half their fans wouldn't be able to recognise, even if they happened to be standing next to them.
