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 62nd Trax Sampler includes Joakim's "Are You Vegetarian," Saul Williams' "Not in Our Name," Ellen Allien's "Wish," Zongamin's "Serious Trouble," and M83's "On a White Lake, a Green Mountain." Yet another recommendable disc, with an assortment of styles and sounds showcased.
