Pioneering Chicago house label Trax dropped a comprehensive greatest hits collection last week to celebrate a quarter century of wax called Trax Records: The 25th Anniversary Collection. To celebrate, the label recruited Kim Ann Foxman of contemporary house sensation Hercules and Love Affair to make a glorious, throbbing, 57-minute mixtape to stream or download. It'll be sure you make your body jerk while attempting office work. The mix should give you a good idea of the compilation, as 12 of its 13 tracks appear within... sorry, Bloodlines!
