Timbaland & UK Garage
Timbaland is credited with influencing a music genre in the U.K named Garage music.
Garage is alleged to have evolved from Chicago House music.
It wasnt until around 1999/2000 where the genre took a shift towards a tempo of around 120 bpm, with stuttering hi hats & unorthodox kicks drums. This was a drum pattern Timbaland had been using for some time.
One of the groups that helped send UK Garage (or 2 step) into the mainstream was So Solid Crew.
