The musicians Ján Ürögi known as Illl and Mária Gašparová (.irma.) already have a collaboration going – Ján is the soundscapist in the three-membered electronic alt-pop project Gwerková, where Mária sings. Their recent release, the melancholy-infused Nada on Exitab, has been awarded the only Slovak “alternative” music prize Radio_Head award, as the critic’s best record of the year 2011.

Now they started another sonic adventure. Soun Records is Ján’s brainchild and the first release of the label is a Illl vs. .irma. split called 10-15mA. Mastered by James Plotkin, known from his collaborations with Scorn or Khanate, the record is a blend of ambient surfaces, melancholic dreamy athmospheres, piano and singing.
