    I thought risers had become cliché around the time goa trance peaked around 2000 or something

    noooo way. The wall was almost there with conventional instruments, ...but now with computers, that wall just moved way way out there past mars.

    I do somewhat agree but I think certain genres do kind of need it. Dubstep for instance, the riser really helps contrast the intro to the drop. Without it, you wouldn't really get the desired effect. I guess its about using different risers and trying to keep it sounding a bit fresh.

    Risers just go with certain styles.. They come and go, lol. I've grown bored of them, and those styles a long time ago, they're too often a cheap way of generating excitement where there is none.
    As I get older I find I prefer music and mixes that can build throughout, flip atmospheres instead of just straight going for the gutpunch constantly.
    If you play that in a long mix, it's really boring..you're not taking the audience anywhere, just pummeling them with electronic trickery.

    Then again, that's me. I'm oldschool. if you do like em, go wild!

    Riders are here to stay. Just put your own twist on it and please, all producers, stop making them so long.
