The Wrangler Is Back!

Dave Wrangler will dabble in any and all genres and his style of performance and production reflect his chaotic focus. He blends elements of hip-hop, electronica, indie, rock and dance into a seamless mix of high-energy madness! Ok, so that just described like every DJ right now...but as one of the busiest and most versatile DJ's in Houston, he is becoming one of the most acclaimed new producers/remixers in the bloghouse (thanks for the description HR!).

Dave's tracks, remixes and sets have been featured with the likes of underground and mainstream powerhouses: Soulwax, Diplo, Justice, Peaches, Portishead, MIA and Santogold just about everywhere.

This time Mr. Wrangler has decided to tackle the Beasties and Kanye West/Twista. Two different tracks two different approaches. If the Beastie Boys track would have been released in 98 it would have had Big Beat Anthem stamped all over it...a post-classic if there ever was one. Meanwhile, the Kanye/Twista track pumps up the energy level like 100 times and lets Underworld run all over the thing. It's yet another post 90's anthem.

Thought you might be interested that DiS managed to have a chat with Beastie Boys last week, have a read of what they said here http://drownedinsound.com/in_depth/4137232-boys-will-be-boys--beastie-boys-talk-hot-sauce-committee-pt-1.

My favourite quote from it is "You could get in the shower one day and, boom, all of a sudden you’re showered with MP3s."
