Yes, I guess the programming would be easy to do in Numerology. It is just a big number of varying patterns. To copy that sound design would be a tougher challenge though; just listen to that falling sub bass synth tone that is heavily side-chained to duck away under kick and tom hits - a precious balance in mixing must be achieved to make that work.

Also: During parts of the piece the square wave synth bass plays more similar to drums than to "a bass line" and that might also influence the listener to experience the whole shebang "as drums" - so one has to have a bit experience in layering bass n drums to create vibes and tensions that isn't really there as sound per se but only to happen in the listener's mind as an effect of the certain frequencies and patterns colliding.
