Review: Bingoboys – How to Dance (House)

This review covers the house track Bingoboys – How to Dance.

This track was released in 1991 as a single.

The track starts off with what sounds like an instructional video. A piano element comes in along with some basic drum kit sounds. The instructional video sound continues.

From there, the vocals come in. Briefly, the instructional section continues before the verse comes back in. After that, the main chorus comes in.

A piano section comes in again before the instructional section comes in. After this, the main vocals come back in. After an additional instructional section, the main vocals come in to finish off the verse. After this, the main chorus comes in again.

The track then takes a turn to a more instrumental section again. The piano continues again and some backup vocals come back to join the track. After this, the main chorus comes in again. This is capped off with some vinyl scratching. Some male vocals come in and the instructional section comes in briefly.

From there, the main chorus comes in again. Some brass elements then come in and help the track break down. After the track ends, the instructional voice comes back briefly.

One thing I do like about this track is getting that sense of creativity in the music. You get that old school instructional video sound and the main vocals basically disagreeing with each other. It’s a classic old vs new battle that, in this case, musically works very well for the track.

The elements of hip hop lyrics work very well for this track. Not only does it add to the overall sound of the track, but it also accentuates that “new school” vibe.

The only issue I have with the track is that sometimes the backup vocals weren’t quite up to par with the rest of the track in terms of quality. In the more instrumental sections, this becomes a bit obvious. While it is a needed and nice touch, I’m not sure they end up filling in the track as well as they could have.

Overall, I thought this was a very solid track. The sense of creativity throughout the track really winds me over on this one. I think the old school vs new school vibe I get ends up working very well. The backup vocals in this case did leave a bit to be desired, but it otherwise works quite well. A solid track.

Score
7.5/10
