Unveiling ‘Airwaves,’ a Cosmic Journey by Árstraumur

“Airwaves” marks the enchanting second album release from the celestial and ambient music endeavor, Àrstraumur. This project is the brainchild of the prolific producer, artist, and remixer David Elfström Lilja, who hails from Söderhamn but has since made his home in Gävle, Sweden. Under the moniker Àrstraumur, David Elfström Lilja crafts experimental space and ambient soundscapes, a project that originated from his personal compositions designed to accompany his journey into sleep.

David’s musical journey began at the tender age of four with drumming, and it took a significant turn in 1984 when he got his hands on his first synthesizer, a Roland SH-101. This passion for music led him to establish the independent record label, I/O Music, in 2011, a venture he passionately leads, focusing on the broad and ever-evolving genre of electronic music.

Beyond his atmospheric creations as Àrstraumur, David operates under several other pseudonyms, with “Moist” standing out as his outlet for pop electronica. His versatility shines through his remixes for illustrious artists such as the Pet Shop Boys (UK), Red Snapper (UK), and Johan Baeckström (SWE), with his work also catching the attention and been remixed by the legendary Tangerine Dream (DE), Kebu (FI) and The Beloved (UK).

David’s artistic reach extends beyond music; he has a rich history as an Art Director, engaging in web and print media and collaborating with some of Sweden’s top artists for more than three decades.

The upcoming album “Airwaves,” set to release on March 15th, is a compilation of eight parts, each a chapter in a grand voyage across the vast expanses of the universe. This ambitious project has already given fans a glimpse with the release of a video for Part 6 that you can watch below.

Join us in the anticipation for “Airwaves,” an album that promises to be a mesmerizing auditory exploration of cosmic wonder.

We hope you’re as excited as we are.
