Sassy Berlin stand-up comedian Daniel-Ryan Spaulding has really lifted our spirits during the last weeks of the quarantine as he has been coming up with new hilarious videos on a daily basis about all things corona. You would think this would quickly grow old but in fact, he’s been continuously serving some of his best comedy videos ever. Who would have thought it would get better than his “It’s Berlin” videos that put him on the map in the first place (at least for audiences here).

In his videos, Daniel’s character “Da’Niel” has been mostly sulking and passive-aggressively commenting on the lockdown and all lack of nightlife and sex club activity that he so dearly misses right now. Most notably you could see him throw a tantrum in front of Berghain when it closed down, crawling somewhere through the bushes of Hasenheide to announce the comeback of cruising, or how he fantasized a huge gay orgy in Mauerpark by disobedient horny gay guys who wouldn’t stay in quarantine.

The later actually was now turned into a techno song by live looping musician Rihu Kai from Australia. What might sound like a bit of a whacky idea turned out to be pretty amazing and we can totally see this being played at actual clubs and the people really going crazy for it. It’s not an entirely new concept, of course, using spoken word segments in techno and house music has had its moments of cool in the early 2000s, and even turned mainstream in later years with such memorable hits as “But first, let me take a selfie”. But for some reason both Daniel-Ryan and Rihu Kai make it work! It’s hilarious and totally danceable. We absolutely love it.

The only irony here: It can’t exactly become a dancefloor banger right now considering all clubs are closed and summer festivals canceled. But we certainly expect to hear the song during some balcony DJ live streams in the coming weeks! Or maybe even at an illegal gay orgy at Mauerpark…
