Trax Records 25th Anniversary Mixtape by Joe Smooth

Here at BeyondEDM we have been huge fans of the electronic dance music label Trax Records for a very long time. This label is one of the originators of the Chicago house music and acid house music sound. They have been putting records out since the 1980′s, and were really instrumental in spreading the early acid house sounds out to the rest of the world.

This mix from Dj Joe Smooth, a Chicago house icon for over 2 decades himself, spans the entire catalog of Trax records. With such classics from such legends as Phuture, Marshall Jefferson and Ralphie Rosario it’s a perfect introduction to a genre and label that has influenced every other genre and subgenre of electronic dance music since the 80′s.
