Happy new year ...
This song was hip hop for most of its life but in the end I removed the voice because it was a bit ridiculous, just from the text of the sample I used: the phrase "ghetto bitches" doesn't really fit the mood ^^.
For creating the space it's again the technique of using pairs of mono instruments or fx tracks+saturation and pan them to opposite sides, and a mix of mono and stereo reverbs on the groups. New is that I also pan the bass, sub bass in the middle and an arturia dx7 and prophet 5 instance at the sides, which has a quite nice sound. Also I think it's the first time that I'm trying to use different modes, minor and phrygian.
Overall I'd say one of my better attempts with this technique. Not sure if I'm just not doing it right or it's a limitation of this technique that it sounds so static and doesn't really fill the room with stereo sparkle.
