AllMusic Review by

Several volumes in this French, promo-only series should be snapped up whenever they're seen. For fans of cutting-edge dance music and left-of-center indie, they serve a function similar to that of the samplers that come with CMJ magazine, providing up-to-date selections of what keen club DJs spin. The value of the average volume in the series is considerably high since many of the tracks are available on vinyl only. A number of big names are present on the 16th Trax Sampler; tracks include Underworld's "King of Snake (Dave Clarke Remix)," Deep Dish's "Sushi," Decoder's "Stash," Coldcut's "Every Home a Prison (Shut Up and Dance Mix)," and DJ Deep's "Dom Dom Jump."
