Overview

Less than a year after his first genre-defining volume of the Down South Bounce series, DJ Jelly returned with a second volume. For the most part, he sticks with the same no-frills approach that made the first volume such a success: He spins some of the most acknowledged Dirty South club anthems and plays it safe in terms of mixing the records, for better or worse. Some of the highlights here include Trick Daddy and Trina's "Nann Nigga," Three 6 Mafia's "Tear da Club Up '97," Eightball & MGJ's "Pimp in My Own Rhyme," Goodie Mob's "They Don't Dance No Mo'," and Master P and Mia X's "Bout It, Bout It." Considering just these songs, Down South Bounce, Vol. 2 certainly has no shortage of classics. Unfortunately, though these aforementioned songs are indeed some of the best Dirty South anthems from the late '90s, there are a few questionable inclusions on this mix; in particular, the latter half of the mix features a number of relatively underground tracks that aren't going to be familiar to most casual listeners and are admittedly not on par with the rest of the mix. Had Jelly kept dropping nothing but classics as he does on the first half of the mix, this volume could arguably have surpassed the first volume in terms of quality. But that isn't the case and, as a result, these latter songs spoil what could have been a flawless mix. Furthermore, Jelly's mixing leaves much to be desired here as well. Sure, he was no Grandmaster Flash on Vol. 1 either, but here you really wonder what's so special about this guy -- any part-time DJ could pull off these mixes. Beyond the few lackluster songs and the at-times shoddy mixing, Down South Bounce excels, particularly for a fully licensed and legal Dirty South mix album. Vol. 1 is still the place to begin, but this second volume is worth seeking out as well if you like what you hear on the first.
