Those familiar with the n5MD cannon may recognize the names of the duo behind Asonat. Fannar Ásgrímsson and Jónas Þór Guðmundsson both have released on the imprint before. Ásgrímsson as one part of Plastik Joy and Guðmundsson as Ruxpin. Asonat was started when a few months after Ásgrímsson returned to his native Iceland he contacted Guðmundsson to see if a collaboration was possible. Upon their first meeting they wrote 2 songs and felt they should further explore the partnership. Over the next year they wrote and recorded what would become tracks for their debut.
