Demetrius Savelio, Sav, the Aerobics Instructor, the Body Snatcher - through the multiple monikers and phases, the South Auckland rapper has rolled with the punches by finding new ways to have his big voice heard - and new backdrops to hear it against.

Most recently, he's directed his energies towards the dancefloor, following his signing to dance music colossus Ministry of Sound, with multi-platinum results.

Sam Wicks talks to Savage about his many incarnations and puts his freestyle rap skills to the test by throwing some classic beats his way. 

Hit play and hear Savage's versatile rhyming.
