Take #18 - It's Always Sunny In DeVida (2024)

A few months ago, back in January 2024, Rígur Lárus uploaded a mix, which was kind of dedicated to Arnold Schwarzenegger. You could have predicted the follow up celebrity which would be on the stage. It is Danny DeVito. You might know him from so many films he played in, and there are simply too many to mention. He also played in the TV hit series ''It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia'', which I thoroughly enjoyed when it was on. I didn't watch it until the last season though, because it became a bit meh toward the end. But still a highly successful and funny show. And Danny coming out of that sofa, butt naked, still haunts my dreams.

I am not a huge fan of Danny. He's OK. But I would not go out to see him in a movie. Just to see a movie specifically for him is a bit much to ask for. He's (to me) an actor that you can see that he's acting. But again, everyone's entitled to have their own opinion. You might think he's the best, and that's cool. But is it really the main focus of this mix? Is it all about Danny, or is there more to this?

Well, there's certainly more to this mix than meets the eye. You need to stick through, and wait until the intro is over, and that's when the magic happens. Rígur Lárus goes all out yet again, and has put together yet another long mix: 2 1/2 hours of Rígur Lárus. It will be very pleasurable, right? He always selects the records I've not encountered before, and it turns out to be always highly recommendable and enjoyable. So it's time for the very long tracklist, here it is:

  34. Tim Engelhardt & Solique - Alive (Original Mix)

  35. WhoMadeWho - Children (Mind Against & Dyzen Remix)

It's yet another very melodic mix, with some hard hitting anthems. And yes, every so often Danny comes along and says something silly, but thankfully those moments are sporadic. It's all about the music, and it's yet another wicked one. He keeps on delivering awesome, but very weird mixes. I still find the concept different, but so am I (different), so it does suit me quite well.

There are quite a few awesome records that stood out from the rest. One of them being 'Hand In Hand', 'Cumulonimbus', but the one that got me dancing the hardest, is 'Horizon'. Oh balls, I need to specify which one, as there are two songs with the same title'. I meant the Joris Voorn song. Brilliant song.

I do love the very melodic vibe of this mix, and throughout it has been a blessing in disguise, hearing these very awesome songs come at you through your speakers. The DJ knows what to play to please the listeners, and he only plays the tracks that would fit in beautifully. The result might be a big of a long mix, but it's worth your time.

Yet another successful mix. Can't wait for the next one, but I have to. Who is going to be the next actor he's going to pick? Maybe Ryan Reynolds? Maybe Brad Pitt? Maybe Chris Pratt? There are too many to choose from, but whatever individual is selected, I'll still be hyped enough for the next instalment.
