Houston mash-up master Dave Wrangler recently remixed Animal Collective's "My Girls," from the Brooklyn buzzmongers' brand-new Merriweather Post Pavilion, for German Web site Byte.fm. It's something of a hit - "Since I put it out, I've had numerous inquiries for DJ bookings all over the country," he reports.
Check it out below, plus his inspired pairing of Hercules & Love Affair and Ludacris' "Stand Up!"; both tracks appear on Wrangler's forthcoming Heads Up Houston mix CD; He climbs behind Boondocks' decks February 13 and the HUH release party February 20. Wrangler also saddles up his turntables for the monthly Vinyl Ranch hoedown at Leon's Lounge February 6.
