Air Liquide is a German electronic band which is composed of Ingmar Koch (a.k.a. "Dr Walker") and Cem Oral (a.k.a. "Jammin' Unit") which was formed in 1991 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Koch and Oral continued to record together under the pseudonyms Madonna 303[1] and Jammin' Unit & Walker.[2]


Oral and Koch in 1991 met at a recording studio in Frankfurt.[3] After a variety of jam sessions in Koch Studio, the duo released Neue Frankfurter Elektronik Schule. Lyrics and vocals for some songs was contributed by Koch's former girlfriend Mary Susan Applegate. Air Liquide was in the mid-1990s especially known for their live performances. The band broke up in 2005 after the previous year's album Let Your Ears Be the Receiver. The duo has continued to reunite and perform at various festivals since 2012. An Air Liquide clubtour was announced for summer / fall 2017.
