Berlin-dwelling Portuguese producer Lino Polonio, AKA Alkalino, serves up a truly distinctive house release on his own Audaz imprint here. Musically, 'We Shall Go Down' is a fairly simple affair consisting of crisp but unassuming percussion, a throbbing bassline, handclaps and fluttering flutes, but it's the vocal that makes it stand out: it's sung in English but in a west African style, with perhaps a little hint of African reggae in there as well. An alternative Version 2 brings the bassline further the fore, but whichever rub you plump for that chant-like vocal is a guaranteed earworm!
