Our man Savvy has released a fresh new track off his new Play to Win – Volume 3 CD that’s ut now. It shows him in a jazzy mood as he lasy vocals over a great beat and some borrowed vocals from Tape the Radio. The guys have skills.You get point if you can spot the clothes in the video, but more points if you can name the product.
Produced by Savvy who once again shows his ability to create worldclass production that defys his humble UK hip hop beginnings. With vocals from Tape The Radio frontman Malcom Carson he delivers sublime yet heartbreaking performance that takes you through the age old story of mis-placed trust, unsettled arguments and the general messy nature that often comes with the territory of a relationship in its demise. Savvy, yet again, manages to draw on darker topics but his clever lyricism ensure the track is excruciatingly easy to listen to and distinctly catchy.
This one might just be the soundtrack to teen break-ups across the country. enjoy…..

Our man Savvy, one of Fly53′s favourite home grown rappers and a big name in the UK hip hop scene, has dropped his final part of the Play To Win mixtape trilogy, and my god, he’s ended on a banger. What’s more he’s printed the Fly53 logo on the back cover, that’s what family do.
We had a little chat with the man himself about his new album. Check it out:
1. Whats changed since recording the first volume of this trilogy?
Play To Win is the final part of this stage of my musical career and a door opener to the next stage for me. I started Play To Win vol.1 as Asaviour, collaborating heavily with artists like Jehst, Braintax DJ IQ (professor green). I’ve finished the series as Savvy (producer /emcee label owner etc), the mixtape represents my growth and transition as an artist.. & man.
2. How long did vol.3 take to make?
Oooh i’d say just over 6 months musically, though I hold tracks in my head for much longer than that. All the business stuff took me into like just under a year
3. Who designed the CD graphics?
I did. I’ve got a couple of strings to my bow haha
4. Where can people buy it from? (itunes? brick n mortar etc..)
You can get the mixtape direct (while stocks last) from my labels site, Saving Grace Music (link below), you can even get a limited edition t-shirt if your swift.
5. Anything else?
If you’ve never heard of me before, have a listen, with an open heart & mind (sounds a bit wet that doesn’t it) but i guess most of all … Love to Win Never Hate to Lose… oh yeah and follow me on twitter – @iam_savvy. safe.
Below is a preview of ’Don’t Look Down’ taken from Play To Win Vol.3.
