A cool trick i discovered was to split the (hiphop) song into 3 sub-busses.....

kick/snare

vocals

everything else

I patched a comp over the "everything" buss, and sent the kick/snare into the sidechain (via aux sends) along with the "everything" signal.........so the sidechain is getting some of both, but only the "everything" buss is getting compressed.......then, you can turn up the kick/snare (aux send) madly loud to get the instrumental pumping insanely (with a fast release) , but you won't be compressing the kick/snare at all, keeping the (k/s) sounding massive...........

.............then i dropped the vox on top of this soup and just kissed it lightly with another comp to connect al the sounds.......worked a treat.
