AllMusic Review by

Wigan Pier Presents Bounce, Vol. 2 is a double-disc bounce mix album on the Ministry of Sound subsidiary Hard2Beat. It's mixed by Nitra M and Mikey B, two of the resident DJs at the United Kingdom's number one bounce club, Wigan Pier. Located not in London like one might suspect but rather Wigan, Greater Manchester, England, Wigan Pier has branded itself as a bounce superclub and released a series of DJ mix albums in affiliation with the United Kingdom's premier superclub, Ministry of Sound. As is generally the case with this style of music, Wigan Pier Presents Bounce, Vol. 2 is pure bounce music. Some of the tracks might look familiar, like Dizzee Rascal and Armand Van Helden's "Bonkers" and Kid Cudi vs. Crookers' "Day 'n' Nite," but if you look closer, you'll see that fairly every track on the album has been remixed. Make no mistake, this is a nonstop bounce mix. If this isn't your style of music -- and for most, it's not -- don't bother. Wigan Pier Presents Bounce, Vol. 2 is targeted toward bounce devotees. It's better than most bounce mixes in that it includes a lot of familiar material and features two resident DJs from Wigan Pier. If anything, it's too typical, including popular favorites like "Bonkers" and "Day 'n' Nite" that are played to death.
