Dr. BENTZ – “Risin’ Up”

“Risin’ Up” is a bustling hip-hop effort touting a synth-laden beat. The effort, from Vancouver-based Dr. BENTZ, succeeds in establishing a climactic rise — and how motivation and drive can help prevent downfalls. “”Risin’ Up embodies the struggle of rising to the challenge to live out your dreams amidst the obstacles presented to you in life,” the artist explains. The vocal presence is breathless while still remaining precise, and providing an extra melodic touch during the chorus to help provide audible differentiation. The electronic beats converge with natural, inspirational lyrics to make this one a recommendation for those seeking uplifting hip-hop with an electro-pop backing.
