Carter Fox – “Rise”


A stirring ambient electronic track from Philadelphia-based artist Carter Fox, “Rise” starts with rhythmic intoxication and never lets go. A grooving bass line and colorful percussive flair delves into a pulsing textural underlying. A shimmering quality emerges by the second minute, with added effervescence shortly thereafter propelled by bright synth pulses. The production thoroughly captivates in its hypnotic structural build, crafting a soundscape with riveting longevity.

“Rise” represents the first single from Fox’s forthcoming EP, Lost Signals From Outer Space. The track’s convergence of grooving bass, African rhythms, and atmospheric synths results in a vibrant sound with ample replay factor. I’m firmly anticipating the EP, which takes inspiration from “the idea of finding an alien sound signal broadcasting from deep space.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2023’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Electronic.
