About airman

airman is the electro pop solo project with an innovative show by Stefan Vallbracht from Cologne, Germany.

airman delivers a straight palette of different electronic variations: You will hear SynthPop, Avantgarde, Big Beat, Trance and also driving Trip-Hop elements. But that doesn’t means Stefan Vallbracht hasn’t a central theme. All elements joining to a sound collage – sometimes with vocals – in an intelligent way.

Stefan Vallbracht, the mastermind of airman, doesn’t avoid inconvenience: Some songs are having very vanguard arrangements. The listener is diving into and dealing with the song. The manifold used sounds are taking the hearer to a journey through time and space – but never without a necessary dash of humour.

The songs are unmistakable influenced by Jean-Michel Jarre, Enigma, Yello, Kraftwerk, Propellerheads and by the dark wave music of the 80s like Depeche Mode or Camouflage.
But no doubt, Vallbracht goes a step beyond, is liberating from fixed patterns and blinders of electronic genres and is comparable with hard to classify pioneers like Art of Noise, Björk or unique concepts like Welle: Erdball.

You can call this for sure ‘ElektroTranceSynthPop 2.0’.
