IDM'S DUO JA I TI RELEASED THEIR FIRST SINGLE "OGLEDALCE"
As we announced few weeks ago, IDM's duo Ja i Ti (Jana Valdevit and Tin Ostreš) officially released their first single "Ogledalce".
The song, inspired by the eternal theme of human stupidity and misunderstandings, has been composed by Jana Valdevit, in a moment of her creative madness in her family basement, while she was getting some rest of the serious musical works, while Tin Ostreš wrote the lyrics.
In recording this creative madness, Jana and Tin got a little help from their friends - Mario Rašić on contrabass and Ivan Božanić on slide guitar.

Happy holidays from IDM Music
With hope that the Mayans weren't quite precise as most of the people think, and that our computers, toasters and washing machines will still be in use after December 31, we send you our best wishes for the upcoming 2012.
We thank you for all the great work we've done together and looking forward to all future projects we will be happily working on.
2011 was a lot of struggle, but as a reminder that after the rain comes sun, we are giving you a free mp3 download of the track "Movin' On" by our artist Harold Perrineau.
