PERFORMING ON THE NIGHT ON THE NIGHT
Saving Grace’s own, Huddersfield born hip-hop artist and impresario Savvy, has cemented himself as one of the strongest hip-hip artists in the UK and will grace the stage at Eat Your Ears this October.
The imagery, colloquial wit and the clever twists and turns in which he delivers his sound sets him apart from some of his more traditional peers and has resulted him receiving widespread acclaim from national & international DJ’s and publications.
Setting up Saving Grace Music in 2007 led Savvy to be part of one of the biggest releases of his genre in 2009; The A Loop Theory alongside DJ IQ (Professor Greens Tour DJ). Q Magazine, Metro, DJ Mag, Front and other UK publications as well as a large number of International Publications gave the LP outstanding reviews and allowed Savvy to set the scene for promoting just what is great about Huddersfield and the music alike.
Savvy now resides at the forefront of the Hip Hop scene receiving support from DJ’s like MistaJam (BBC Radio1/1xtra), DJ MK & Shortee Blitz (Kiss FM), Adele Roberts (BBC Radio1), Nikki Beatnik, (Kelis, Nichola Roberts) Giles Peterson and huge dance legends like Laurent Garnier.
His expansion continued body of work shows again the immense artistic vision and growth which has allowed him to work with artists like Athlete, Jehst, Stac, Akira Kiteshi, Totally Enourmous Extinct Dinosaurs , Tape the Radio, and Bloc Party to name a few.
Who says you need an instrument to create music you can to do what Ball-Zee can, without?
Ball-Zee is set to tear up the stage at Eat Your Ears this October with his outstanding ability to create heavy beats, realistic sound FX and deep, dirty base lines using only his mouth and vocal chords. After holding his title as a Northern beat-boxing talent for three years, it is no wonder that he is now two times UK Beat Box Champion (2011 & 2012), Emperor Of Mic 2012 and stormed his way through the notoriously tough Grand Beatbox Battle, in Basel, Switzerland, to become champion this year. Aside from his solo work, he also lends his talents to Extra Curricular’s live shows; a hip-hop/soul group formed in Huddersfield.
