Is Defected lining up their next tech-house cash-in record? Label jokes on X about people sampling “Prisencolinensinainciusol” by Adriano Celentano on their own track…

When thinking about dance music, the name Adriano Celentano is probably not the first that comes to mind – well, not unless you work for Defected’s social media team, anyway. During the week, they reposted a video from the Historic Vids account on X, formerly Twitter, showing a clip from one of Celentano’s most well-known songs.

The record in question was released in December 1972 and had the catchy title of “Prisencolinensinainciusol”. The song in question is meant to vaguely sound like English spoken with an American accent – but is actually nothing more than gibberish with the sole exception of the words “all right”.

Defected jokingly – at least presumably – posed a question…

Quite whether the A&R department at the label is going to be swamped with demos in the next few weeks of people trying to do precisely that remains to be seen – although if Defected think they’re doing anything new here, they might be mistaken.

A quick search online reveals that remixes of “Prisencolinensinainciusol” – and yes, you probably did read those words correctly – were released on Italy’s Flying Records back in 1995, and they were produced by Alex Party. If that name doesn’t ring a bell, type “Don’t Give Me Your Life” into YouTube and it soon will.

If you see an Endor produced tech-house cash-in released on Defected next year, remember where you first heard about the concept…
