Dance Music ‘Riser’ / ‘Uplifter’ Effect Samples

Riser / Uplifter Samples

Risers / Uplifters are prevalent through all forms of dance music and are used to build tension, particularly in breakdowns or builds to a drop.

Here’s a collection of a few which you may use freely in your own productions or DJ sets. They’re all 140bpm and last for 9 bars (8 bars for the effect and a 1 bar ‘tail’ at the end).

They’ve all been made using Crescendo, a specially made app for Mac & PC for designing Uplifters & Risers. Learn More
