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. Highlights of the 57th Trax Sampler include Metro Area's "Miura," Death in Vegas' "Hands Around My Throat (Adult. Remix)," LCD Soundsystem's "Beat Connection (Tiga Edit)," Roni Size's "Keep Strong and Find Myself," and Terranova's "Concepts" -- along with six other selections.
