SONIC EXPERIENCE!

“Eh we

Baby up in the tempo
I like the girl when you dance oh,
baby girl do the calypso baby girl ur body bad oh.
Up in the tempo l like the u dance oh, way u wine oh, baby oh pa mi
Body na …, baby oh fa mi oh
Dance for me
If u want to shake shake ah ha ha”

Tekno releases a new Afrobeat track called Uptempo. The song was produced by Tekno himself, this is his third release of the year. The song is a melodious dance song.Let us dig into the review of the music, shall we?

 

 

Positives

Uptempo starts right off the bat, there was really no elaborate intro in the music. There was hardly any change of rhythm at the beginning of the song.
During the review, we had no problems listening to what Tekno was singing, at least we were able to hear him clearly.
The melody of Uptempo is actually a mixture of Afrobeat and highlife, the highlife was so apparent in the song. For some reasons, Tekno has been tilting towards more of highlife songs than ever. We did enjoy the rhythm and the overall harmony of the song.
The instrumentals of the song are actually quite heavy, we did like the varying sounds, it gave the impression of a rich blend of sounds.

Negatives

Uptempo is exclusively a dance song, this can be inferred from the name itself so do not go expecting any deep lyrics in the song. The structure of the lyrics itself is hardly decent, it felt like the song was being covered up by the heavy beat.
The melody of the song is hardly inspiring, while it is not horrible it could have been better.

Bottom Line
 

During the review, we came to the conclusion that Uptempo will not be winning any new fans for Tekno, the lyrics are bland, the melody is not really memorable and the song is plagued with the Deja vu feeling that we have heard the song over a hundred times before today.
