Little Snake continues his quest to “find the fourth wall and break it” as Brainfeeder prepare to release his debut album “A Fragmented Love Story, Written By The Infinite Helix Architect”. The album will be released digitally and on a strictly limited edition pill-shaped USB stick in holographic packaging with a raft of exclusive bonus music and art. The USB format will be exclusively available to preorder from Little Snake’s Bandcamp store on Friday 2nd April.
“A Fragmented Love Story, Written By The Infinite Helix Architect” is a sprawling masterpiece juxtaposing rhythm, tempo, melody and form. The Canadian producer – real name Gino Serpentini – has been deconstructing dancefloor norms, subverting traditional structures and refining his utterly inimitable sonic signature since 2017, spearheading a new wave of experimental producers hell bent on breaking new ground. Highly respected both by his peers and elders alike, it’s no coincidence that two titans of the avant garde: Amon Tobin and Flying Lotus, appear on the record alongside fellow upstarts SABROI, Tutara Peak and Shrimpnose.
Announcement single ‘Fallen Angels’ is a perfect ambassador for the record. A collaboration with his mentor Flying Lotus, it sounds like a gang of unruly Decepticons gatecrashing choir practice at St Paul’s Cathedral. Ethereal beauty clashing with mangled sound design. It’s accompanied by visuals created by Serpentini under the tutelage of David Wexler aka Strangeloop.
According to Little Snake: “‘A Fragmented Love Story, Written By The Infinite Helix Architect’ is intended to be a signal to those who have experienced the consciousness of a dualistic pattern they may find themselves in. It is intended to be the most generalized amalgamation of the furthest corners of all tangible emotional complexes and perceivable spectrums known to humankind and beyond. It is a take on the consciousness of the severe echo chamber of inexplicable trauma and fulfillment around it throughout my own personal experience while trying to fully step outside of my perception of reality and notice the patterns we all face.
To those of you who resonate with this, this is about safely finding a way out for those who are finally ready to step outside the dualistic frequency of love and fear. This is about creating conversation for those who suffer trauma beyond comprehension and cannot talk about it, and connecting on a level where we can bring the next conscious step in the evolution of humankind. It is about working together as humans and together as galactic beings. If you are reading this you are not alone. We are not alone. We may move forward now to the new reality if you are ready.”
Little Snake signed to Brainfeeder in 2018 after his tracks became a staple in Flying Lotus’s DJ sets, with the Brainfeeder label head describing his productions as “fkn insane”. He has released 3 EPs on the label, balancing intricacy with explosive bass weight: “YATDC” (2020), “LOST IN SPIRALS” (2019) that was informed by math rock, textural noise, acid techno and jungle; and “ENTER” (2018) which was inspired by the Gaspar Noé film Enter The Void.
