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 43rd installment in the Trax Sampler series includes Radiohead's "(The Amazing Sound Of) Orgy," Superpitcher's "Don't Think Too Much," Basement Jaxx's "Get Me Off," Osunlade's "Rader Du," and Plaid's "Eyen" -- along with five other tracks. This is one of the best in the series, solid from style-hop to style-hop.
