A breeze of fresh AIR

Air is the English translation for lug, luften, Luft, ilma, de l'air, udara, aria, aeris, hava.


Air is also French and can be translated as melody.

And AIR is finally also an acronym for Amour, Imagination, Rêve which translates to Love, Imagination, Dream, which is a French band founded by Nicolas Godin und Jean-Benoît Dunckel.

Since their first LP in 1997 seven records:
  • 1997 Premiers Symptomes
  • 1998 Moon Safari
  • 2000 The Virgin Suicides
  • 2001 10 000 Hz Legend
  • 2004 Talkie Walkie
  • 2007 Pocket Symphony
  • 2009 Love 2

AIR is hard to sort by genre: it's ambient, electro, pop and trip hop.
The duo uses mainly analogue synthesizers (Korg, Moog), also Wurlitzer and Vocoder, which create
smooth, mellow and dreamy songs.

Listen to their best three records here:
