Hreno "Little Squirl"
Berlin-via-Montreal producer Hreno hit XLR8R earlier this year with a track from his The Frank Barns EP and a remix for Visionquest starlet Dinky. Now, we're treated to "Little Squirl" from his Parts Unknown EP (due out on December 16), a track which trots in on a dank and detuned keyboard melody that drifts amongst squirming acid embellishments and murky percussion. A staid spoken phrase eventually slithers in, receding almost immediately into a shroud of white noise as the reigned-in house groove descends into what feels like an extended breakdown.
