Sonny Fodera & Marten Hørger team up for “Levitate”

The upbeat house song pays homage to historic warehouse beats with classic house chord progressions, blazing percussion, and enticing vocal samples.

Today, Sonny Fodera and Marten Hrger release their debut collaboration, “Levitate,” via Insomniac Records. Marten Hrger’s debut with Insomniac, and Fodera’s first release with the label since his full-length 2019 LP Rise. “Levitate” is a vintage warehouse-inspired groover that closes off 2023 in big style. It is filled to the brim with classic house chord progressions, blazing percussion, and captivating vocal samples.

Can’t wait to finally drop this one with Marten. We’ve been working on “Levitate” for a while and it’s a big track to close the year with. We hope you love it as much as we do! – Sonny Fodera

Sonny Fodera and Marten Hrger Levitate

Levitate” begins with reverberating synth chords and is followed by the track’s central vocal chant. It repeats “Listen to the sound/We levitate, we levitate/Go listen to the sound/We levitate/Go higher, higher,” a call to action for dancefloor dwellers.

The tune starts with claps and stuttering percussion before dropping into a thundering four-on-the-floor kick drum. It continues the hypnotic main synth chord melody. “Levitate” then contains dazzling hi-hats, and an amen break, then returns to the beat with a panned, chopped-up voice melody in the backdrop.

I’m beyond happy to finally get this tune out of the studio and into the world with my buddy Sonny Fodera! Those high energy vocals paired with that burning baseline make me want to dance all the time!’ – Marten Hørger

Fodera has racked up a long list of accomplishments since releasing his first music at the age of 23. He has collaborated and remixed for titans such as Calvin Harris, Glass Animals, and Diplo. He did multiple sold-out tours across North America and the UK, including his recent sold-out show at London’s historic Alexandra Palace. He performed at some of the world’s biggest festivals such as Glastonbury, and Tomorrowland, and Insomniac-run events such as EDC Las Vegas.

Levitate” is a flawless exhibition of two dance music musicians at the top of their game. It’s vibrant, energetic, and brilliantly produced.
