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 60th disc in the Trax Sampler series includes Freaks' "The Washing Machine," Paul Nazca's "Emotion," Rework's "You're So Just Just," the Majesticons' "Helicopter Party," and Diego's "Me Fragments" -- along with five other tracks. Another fine compilation in the series.
