HERE IS A LOOK AT A SIVION & FREDDIE BRUNO'S “BUTTERFLY SESSIONS: REMIXED BY FREDDIE BRUNO” | @SIVIONDS5 @FREDBRUNO


Check this dope remix project that Freddie Bruno did for Sivion‘s Butterfly Sessionsproject.

“Butterfly Sessions: Remixed by Freddie Bruno” is a release from Dallas TX emcee Sivion. It’s his 4th release and is a complete remix of his album “Butterfly Sessions”. The project gets a remix treatment by fellow Dallas TX artist/producer Freddie Bruno. Both represent the Deepspace5 crew (Mars ILL, Playdough, Sev Statik, Sintax the Terrific among others).

“When I first thought about remixing Butterfly Sessions, I really wanted it to be unique and nothing like the original project. Freddie Bruno had been exploring some new production styles/techniques with different equipment and sounds. What I had heard from him at the time was so full of growth and life, musically, that I had to see if he’d do it. So I asked him and he was down, immediately. That’s what family is about….helping each other grow. Man…what followed was amazing batch of remixes that I’m so excited to share with the world.” – Sivion

“Sivion is probably one of my closest friends and also one of the most picky in the realm of music and or hip hop. When he initially asked me to do a remix record I was shocked because Dert brought the hammer with the beats on the original record so I knew I had to step it up if I was going to agree to it. The first track I ever tried for it was Brand New Day and I believe that sealed it for him. He absolutely LOVED it and sold me on doing the whole thing my way… In all honesty I really enjoyed doing the project, incorporating my style with live instrumentation, and just really giving it my signature sound. Post production was a blast and using no samples on the project was a firstfor me…but still came out really well rounded, balanced and bangin!” – Freddie Bruno

Whilst perhaps the production is the focus on this release, it’s still a Sivion album and therefore the beats should be supportive of the rhymes. Sivion has a likable flow and tone – perhaps the DS5 MC who’s easiest on the ear – and although subject matter varies he has a clear witness. With his mature approach to Hip Hop there’s very little posturing and braggadocio and there is a definite feeling of Siv taking his responsibilities as a rapper seriously. That’s not to say the music’s only for the po-faced; in fact, Freddie Bruno’s creations really help to keep things bouncing. ‘Do Not Disturb’ would definitely make it onto a compilation of ‘Rap Love Ballads About Hip Hop’ as Sivion’s personification of the genre is done exceedingly well (with a healthy nod to ATCQ’s ‘Bonita Applebum’). So, the beats; what are they like? Do they work? Well, it would be forgivable to think that these were the original beats because they do mesh well with the vocals. On tracks like ‘Older Now’ and ‘Everything is Everything’ Freddie Bruno has taken the melodies of the sung choruses and gone beyond ensuring that musically nothing clashes – these really are tailor-made. I’ve just been through to check and, yup, my suspicions are confirmed; each of these tracks has been deliberately to make the listener nod – and to me, that’s a sign of realness. The organ and flute combination on ‘Older Now’ brings an additional mellowness to the subject matter whereas the relentless string stabs and synth riffs (as well as DJ Aslan’s scratches) on ‘Brand New Day’ picks up the pace and gets the adrenaline going. The swelling synths and yet more jazz flute on ‘The Inevitable’ contrasts enough with the funky keys of ‘Life’s Bigger Than You’ without breaking the mold of the album’s sound. Read More Here
