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 63rd Trax Sampler includes Goldfrapp's "Train (Ewan Pearson's 6/8 Vocal Edit)," Volga Select's "The Unconditional Discipline of the Bastard Prince," Aphrohead's "Tri-Beka," RJD2's "Bus Stop Bitties," and Prefuse 73's "Choking You." Recommended with no reservations; it's worth it alone for the Goldfrapp track.
