AllMusic Review by

Pump is a fine program from Los Angeles electronica auteur the Rip Off Artist (aka Matt Haines). And if the dubious story of his months working on an oil rig was the inspiration here, then the result is certainly admirable for its deft mix of symbolic soundscapes (industrial blips and whirs) and stand-alone pieces. And once you get past the fact there are 69 cuts listed (there are actually 13 tracks usually consisting of a handful of these cuts), the experience is an enjoyable mix of dub, dance, and ingeniously utilitarian beats and textures perfect for your next dancefloor affair or an hour at the local filling station.
