«HyperViolet is a space. It is a destination. HyperViolet is the hollowness behind aching, arching light glancing off half-hidden spires and metallic mountaintops. In HyperViolet, Brooklyn-based saxophonist and electronicist Johnny Butler has found his perfect medium, his perfect space within the sound of his own life. Combining pop sensibilities with avant-garde yearnings, Butler has created a world within a world, and it is a glorious place within which to get lost.»

Saxophonist, composer, producer, and technologist Johnny Butler’s live shows have been a showcase of brilliant improvisation and beautiful electronic music. Groove-driven but given to richly textured sound design, rhythmically fractured but melodically sumptuous, Johnny Butler’s music is a bridge between the past and the present, bringing the artist face-to-face with a creative legacy that spans decades, equally influenced by Intelligent Dance Music and boom-bap hip-hop as Miles Davis and John Coltrane.

Over the years, Johnny has performed, written, and recorded with many of his musical heroes in a wide range of styles including writing and recording for Beyonce, playing with tUnE-yArDs, Donald Fagen (Steely Dan), Warren Haynes, the Levon Helm Band, Govt Mule, Rubblebucket, Joe Lally (Fugazi), Strangefolk at StrangeCreek, La La Brooks of Phil Spector’s Crystals, The Skeletons Big Band, recorded with Grammy-award winner and former American Idol Judge Randy Jackson at Jim Henson Studios in Los Angeles, and has opened up for Stevie Wonder, Lettuce, Common, Medeski Martin and Wood, Rebirth Brass Band, The Avett Brothers, Dr. John, Fitz and the Tantrums, Counting Crows, moe., Soulive, Sharon Jones and Dap Kings, Trombone Shorty, Grand Funk Railroad, Galatic, Allen Stone, Turkauz, and the Funky Meters.

“After dabbling with resonances from John Coltrane and Miles Davis and enveloping his processed saxophone sound in cavernous reverb, Brooklyn-based Johnny Butler turns a polyphony of overdubbed horns (triggered by laptop) into Fritz Lang’s Metropolis machine on SOLO.” -Downbeat Magazine
