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 61st Trax Sampler includes Carl Craig's "Highest," Shake's "Simpatico," Brett Johnson's "Tempations and Lies (For Those Who Can Mix)," Barbara Morgenstern's "Move," and Wide Open Cage's "Baby Hood." Further proof that the compilers of this series are on the ball.
