Deployment is the debut release from mystery act R.A.S.P and it starts in explosive mode. "Deployed" revolves around a hammering rhythm, surging bass and rolling snares, while a strangled shriek that plays on repeat lends it a truly individualistic feeling. "Fortified" is a more controlled, but also features hollowed out drums and acrid 303s, while R.A.S.P takes it down a notch on "Insert Point". Deeper and more mysterious sounding than the first two tracks, it has the kind of atmospheric nuances that prevail on James Ruskin and Lakker's recent work for Blueprint. Closing the release is "Strong Hold", where R.A.S.P show that they are adept at working 303 elements into a Baby Ford-style minimal groove.
