Levitation was founded back in 1993 by Chris Gilcher aka Cris Moreno, Ingmar Hänsch aka Ingmarlo and Marcell Meyer aka DJ Sweep. The project is nowadays under the patronage of Movin’ Sounds Ibiza, whereas the upcoming “Essential Levitation” album will be released by Whirlpool Records in February 2012. Levitation is mostly known for their songs Out Of Time and More Than Ever People featuring vocalist Cathy Battistessa.
Both songs have been regularly used in TV commercials and documentaries. On this page both the music that evolved out of cooperations with internationally acclaimed singers are featured and Out Of Time, Levitation’s early instrumental piece. It was licensed for the worldwide D2 to Vodafone campaign and is the soundlogo of a german TV station since more than a decade.
