In some ways, this is a rather curious release by Sound Signature standards. Instead of the label's usual muddy deep house and jazz-flecked oddities, "Pipe Bomb" sounds like an intense fusion of booming techno, classic Yorkshire bleep 'n' bass, dirty acid and early Orbital. With, it should be noted, the sort of loose, jazz influenced percussion touches that mark out much Detroit dance music. The whole thing is creepy and otherworldly, but strangely also rather attractive in a smacked-out paranoia kind of way. It would have been interesting to hear some alternate versions or remixes, but you can't fault Specter's intoxicating orginal for offbeat thrills.
