On this collection we have the release that really brought Platipus to the attention of dance fans, 'Children' by Robert Miles. The track was originally released on DBX in Italy but when Platipus licensed it the track received serious caning and airplay, so much so that it was re-licensed by Deconstruction.

Despite the commercial focus of 'Children' the tracks on 'Volume 2' showcase Platipus when they were still in their darker, harder acid-influcenced early stages. It features the best of the singles that had been released after 'Volume 1' e.g. 'Red Herring' and 'Cactus' by Union Jack and the 10" mix of 'Plastic Gourd' by Quietman.

'Volume 2' also contains remixes of some of the previous singles that were only released on limited vinyl e.g. 'Octopus' by Art of Trance is represented in original mix and excellent full-on Goa remix by Man With No Name. Another such standout is the top remix of 'Vicious Circles' by Union Jack.

Was 'Volume 2' as ground-breaking as its predecessor? Aside from 'Children' and 'Plastic Gourd' probably not. However the standard of music on 'Volume 2' is just as high and the focus is just as hard. It's an essential CD for anyone into the early-mid 90's trance scene.
