Lennon drum sound

Lennons drum sound on imagine - what's going down?

I'm working towards something similar for my own music. I'm getting a kick sound very similar.
But need some tips for mixing in general, how do they get that isolated separation feel? Is it gating?
Also if I'm recording with one mono overhead with an SDC I need tips on bringing out the snare, what frequencies are best for that and getting the snare more in the face sounding from a mono overhead?
I'm recording with the mono overhead 2 drum sticks above the snare and a mic on the kick.
Ideally I'd have a mic on the snare too but I'm working with 2 inputs on my id22.

Any tips?
Ps: please don't say 'you gotta drum like lennons drummer to get that sound'....yes I know the drummer is important, but I can still get a lennonesqye sound through mixing too. I'm not expecting it to sound as amazing as lennons album!! Otherwise I'd be in LA shagging a supermodel right now.
