Taxonomy of strings in dance music / hip hop.
1) Orientalist:

2) Disco:

3) Wagnerian / bombastic:
Embarrassingly coming up blank trying to think of a great example here, but loads of recent rap. And Galvanize by the Chemical Brothers.

Does that cover it?

Strings are way weirder on the original:

There was also that pseudo orchestral rework of Haunted Dancehall by In The Nursery but that is not stringy enough for my tastes.

Another example of good, late, Weatherall strings. Second half of the track only, 4:30 or so onwards.
