Alongside De Gama, Pierandrea The Professor aka Les Inferno is the man behind the much-loved Samosa imprint. A DJ for over 30 years, ‘The Professor’ is well known in his native Italy as a true vinyl connoisseur, a fact that’s no doubt attributable to a seventy-thousand strong vinyl collection. And so it is that he pipes up with the label’s latest. Under his Les Inferno alias, Pierandrea concocts two classic jams (and two neat interpretations of each). A full-scale disco explosion, the EP is a treat for fans of sun-kissed house, the likes of which is sure to win plaudits from DJs such as Prosumer, Hunee and Ben UFO.

The action kicks off courtesy of the original “Everything I Do”. Produced with an obscure disco sample at its core, it’s a dreamy anthem with roots that will speak to fans of vintage Loft records especially. Effortlessly simple but devilishly catchy, it’s the perfect tonic with which to help ease the autumn blues. The ‘breakdown’ version strips the original of its vocals, allowing the drums to take centre stage alongside its gorgeous melodies.

On the flip, “What Do You Think” goes even funkier still, with its dancefloor prowess epitomised by a vocal that wouldn’t sound of place in Paradise Garage. A truly momentous record, it’s sure to unleash pandemonium on any DJ it’s allowed to let loose on. If you’re after something similar but without the campness of the original, there’s a dub version that ought to do the trick. A stunning release throughout.
