    I was listening to it on headphones and I noticed at the end of the track after 2:14, the riff sounds like its gradually going further back then at 2:25 it sounds far back/cool.

    any idea how he made it sound so damn trippy?

    I haven't heard it but I'm guessing its a combination of reverb mix automation and high roll off

    Yep sam almost nailed it. Probably just an automation on the reverb to add some more "wet" into the synth and rolling of the lows instead of the highs.

    Rolling off the highs gradually will simulate the sound moving further away as high frequencies lose energy quicker than lower freq's.
    The best example of this is when you hear your next door neighbour playing music. The low end is usually audible by the highs are somewhat muffled.

    exactly, reverb itself wont make the sound seem further away. just more like its in a big cave or whatever. i want to get drunk and rock out to the stones btw.

    False, reverb does makes things sound more to the back of the mix ever so slightly, even without the highs rolled off. I was reading this in an interview with some guy from Pensado┬┤s Place quite some time ago, dunnow which one though. Now for the realistic way you would have to cut off the highs, but even without you can simulate a sound being more in the back of a mix by rolling up the "wet" knob on your reverb.

    yes but only farther to the back in a closed space, like a garage or a cave, not on a football field or the savanne. so its only true for spaces where reverb is natural which arent very big, they are all closed spaces. the savanne is a very big place my friend, the only way to make things sound further away is nothing to do with reverb.

    You could try playing around with interneural intensity and interneural arrival time as well.
