I can shorten that who-recorded-with-who chain by one step: Miles Davis -> Dave Holland or Elvin Jones -> Bill Frisell -> Mike Patton -> Dave Lombardo -> Slayer

The most direct Patton connection to looping would be his one or two recordings with Naked City, which of course featured loopy Bill Frisell.
(This connection is responsible, too, for a bit of fun of
the seven degrees of Kevin Bacon variety. One can connect Slayer to Miles Davis in six steps; Miles recorded with Bill Evans, who recorded with Paul Motian, who recorded with Frisell, who recorded with Patton, who recorded with Dave Lombardo, who recorded w/Slayer).
