Pär Grindvik & Peder Mannerfelt’s Aasthma twyst out a lush breakstep rave night flight starring Penelope Trappes on the 3rd volume of their black label rave series

Proceeding the club-ready pressure of Aasthma’s ‘Only The Appraiser’ and ‘Los Angeles’ 12”s, Penelope Trappes (The Golden Filter) returns the favour of Aasthma’s remix for her ‘Connector’ cut with a dreamily detached vocal placed high in the mix over sweepingly dramatic strings and swaggering breakbeat techno momentum destined for the warehouse.

Rerouting early ‘90s hardcore breaks via tempered late ‘90s trance melancholy and ’00s breakstep ruggedness, title tune ‘Army Of Love’ hits a classic mark somewhere between J Saul Kane, early Vex’d and the tight Hard Drum rolige of DJ Plead, while the following, slower version ‘The Task’ sees the same elements devoid of vocals and dragged down to a creepy 110bpm crawl, revealing ghostly synth spectres haunting its hunched breaks.
