Various Artists The Diet Strychnine Sampler
- Words: DMatrix
- Label: Diet Strychnine
Diet Strychnine is California's poisonous answer to UK breaks labels like TCR and Bochit. These guys deal in well-produced tech-house, electro and dubby breaks without a feeble beat to be found, all tempered by a good amount of bass-fueled funk. Tracks by PJ Stroller, The New Humans, bioFlava and Psylent are potent weapons for DJs looking for dancefloor bombs. A personal favorite: "Green Light Dread Bounce," Oakland-based Deep Fat Fried's tribute to late-'90s techstep that invokes the spirit of the great Johnny L.
