Rocks Off mentioned this right after Houston's main man on the mash-ups, Dave Wrangler, agreed to DJ tonight's Washington Shore party (8 p.m., rain or shine) at the Washington Avenue Drinkery, but it's worth repeating. Wrangler's got a new 18-track collection of mix-n-match music, Under the Influence, featuring everyone from The xx, Hercules & Love Affair and YACHT to Slim Thug, Herbie Hancock and Kool & the Gang. Dude's diverse. We gave you a sneak preview, too. Wednesday, Wrangler announced via email that he's printed up 500 hard copies of Under the Influence to promote at SXSW... but he might be willing to part with some of them if you hit him up at email@example.com. He's also got a new Web site design if you're even more digitally inclined. We know that track listing is a little hard to read up there, so check it out - and a few more previews, recommended by Wrangler himself - after the jump. 1. Beastie Boys vs. Kool & the Gang, "Hey Ladies" 2. Slim Thug, "Diamonds" 3. The Whitest Boy Alive vs. Daft Punk, "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" 4. Outkast vs. Royksopp, "Rosa Parks" 5.
