Re: [deep drum&bass] sf - codex
The kick definitely sounds all-beater / little-bottom, but I think the loud volume of it plays well into the context of the track. You nailed the hits, 'breaks', and every other part of the percussion (I know they're not just recycled breaks but rather a highly-detailed aspect of the arrangement, hence the quotes).
The atmosphere and subtle sounds that seemingly never repeat create a cinematic experience of sorts. Out of personal preference I'd love to hear a version without the drums at all (or maybe just the quieter layers), so maybe the kick is just too up-front for my taste, although I usually love the tight-beater sound.
Around 5:30 is where the magic happens for me
