RISE is an event company, record label, and a movement founded in 2015 to showcase the common ground between Berlin's scene and underground artists who are from Africa or are influenced by African culture. RISE holds showcases and monthly parties at the famous Watergate Club in Berlin, but the collective has crisscrossed the globe, hosting RISE events across Europe, Africa, North & Central America, and Asia.

The core essence is to create a unique space where people can feel safe to express themselves, no matter their ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, or social status. Everyone is invited to dance, embrace, and celebrate what Africa is about in the electronic music scene, to feel the spirit and sensuality of the sound.

RISE is refining house and techno off the beaten path.
