Harry Agius continues to build his profile via releases that willfully blur the boundaries between deep house, tech-house and contemporary bass music. For the most part, Placement is fairly traditional in its outlook, offering musical blends that err on the side of caution. That's not to say there's not great material; far from it, in fact. "Placement" and "What We Know" boast both drive and swing, and come loaded with the kind of crackly acid lines and electronic riffs that recall Brown Album-era Orbital. The impressive "Tape Burn" goes deeper, offering hissing snares, barely audible pianos and stoned atmospheres, while "Tail Ender" delivers a quietly melodic take on ambidextrous bass music.
