The Ventures were an instrumental rock group from the days of my youth who were known for their up-tempo, driving, pulsating beats that gave special prominence to drummers. They were one of the few purely instrumental rock bands that had an extended successful career, the British group The Shadows being another one.
Here are two examples. One is the tune Wipe Out.
In the other, where they play the theme from the TV show Hawaii Five-O, they have the unusual feature of two sets of drums that accentuated the beat even more.
