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. The 37th Trax Sampler includes Nick Holder's "America Eats Its Young," Mount Florida's "Space Echoes," Señor Coconut's "The Robots (Cha Cha Cha)," Fingathing's "Head to Head," and Technasia's "Future Mix (Live)" -- along with three other tracks.
