Ninja Tune’s Little Snake and renowned Brazilian producer Amon Tobin share a new visualizer for Loophole, their joint single. Directed by Strangeloop (Flying Lotus, Earthgang, Clams Casino), the video is a psychedelic, digital distortion of what looks like the viewer’s own computer screen.
Loophole begins on a screen where various programs, audio software to the internet, begin to glitch. From the sides, shapeless images creep onto and slowly engulf the display. As they take over, the images contort, combine, and flash in brilliant and bizarre patterns, all while the music screeches, clangs, and gurgles beneath. It is a testament to the computer, a sort of loophole itself, able to immerse users in entirely new worlds using only light and sound.

Little Snake: “Loophole – to me – is the embodiment of a portal in which transfiguration occurs. A transfiguration in which we return to a heartspace beyond all delusions within this 3D hologram and return to a state of peace in which we truly know. We know and embody truth beyond our physical minds comprehension and temporary emotions. It takes us to a place where fear and love no longer hold any power and control over us, and instead brings us to a place of complete freedom to truly exist. I would like to extend a huge thanks to one of my all time greatest inspirations – Amon Tobin – for writing this alongside me. It is truly a full circle moment for me.”
Amon Tobin: “Little Snake approaches music with a reckless abandon that gives me hope for a new generation of producers.”
