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. The 59th Trax Sampler keeps the streak of well-selected volumes running, thanks to the inclusion of MRI's "Disco Discovery," Erlend Øye's "Every Party Has a Winner and a Loser," the Soft Pink Truth's "Promofunk," DJ Spinna's "Alfonso's Thing," and Tiga's cover of Nelly's "Hot in Herre."
