Those familiar with the n5MD cannon may recognize the names of the duo behind Asonat. Fannar Ásgrímsson and Jónas Thór 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 album "Love in Times of Repetition". In 2012 Asonat performed at the Iceland Airwaves festival with Olèna Simon reprising her vocal duties. In 2013 they played shows in the Czech Republic and Russia while also concentrating on recording new material. In January 2014 they will release "Rather Interesting", a precursory EP to a yet unnamed album, that will be released later in that year. For their releases the Duo have collaborated with fellow Icelandic artist Kjartan Ólafsson (Ampop & Kjarr), Spanish band I am Dive via a remix swap, Japanese singer Chihiro and the aforementioned French singer Olèna Simon.
