The sound was created by Luke Vibert, Squarepusher, and Aphex Twin. Aphex Twin`s LP released in 1995 became the basis for drill`n`bass.
In 1998 and 1999 Aphex Twin released singles «Come to Daddy» and «Windowlicker», they were both in drill`n`bass and became commercially successful. In 1999 the popularity of the term «drill`n`bass» began to decrease and new successful musicians – Venetian Snares, Line 47 or Doormouse preferring to work with difficult drum and bass tracks created a new term for a designation of their music – breakcore.
