Xpansions was formed in 1990 and was the brainchild of Richie Malone. “Move Your Body (Elevation)” was originally released on Optimism records and went on to reach number 7 in the UK pop charts in 1991, one of the first big dance crossover hits at the time.
Move Your Body was then re-released by Arista records in 1995 and again had chart success this time peaking at number 12. During this period Xpansions had twice appeared on the legendary Top of the Pops and several other popular TV shows at the time. Now a bona fide classic, Xpansions was always a regular feature on compilation albums, radio shows and Spotify playlists worldwide with support for “Move Your Body” coming in across the board from the worlds biggest DJs, even to this day! With the recent rise in popularity of music from that era and a new record deal with Shadow Childs “Food Music” this has prompted the group to reform. Move Your Body has been chosen by Suzuki as the music for their Suzuki Swift 2019 TV campaign and with an estimated 3.5 million views per week has helped expose the track to a new generation of clubbers and music fans for the very first time which in turn has seen play counts across social media reach new heights. After the release of the 2019 remixes on Food Music the project was then picked up by Positiva Records after huge support from Radio 1 and Club DJ’s across the world. The track is now set to be a summer anthem once again.
