North: Deep dark ambient techno by Periskop on a four-track EP released by Kabalion Records, August 18th 2016.
The tracks are older solo productions from 2004-2008 picked by Kabalion Records from the Periskop archives, and two of them have been slightly reworked in late 2015 for the release of this EP. All tracks are mastered for vinyl and digital consumption by Mattias Fridell.
A positive review/article has already been published by JunoPlus. Two of the four tracks have been made available for listening prior to the release.
It is now about half a year since the Periskop full-length Immerse was released on Kabalion Records. The material is originally from 2000-2008 but significant effort was put into remodeling it in 2014-2015, so that it would become a coherent whole. It is rewarding to look back on all this and see that it has been well received. Considering Immerse is basically long depressing tracks with low to no tempo and arguably only abstract sounds and noises, this has been a pleasant surprise.
From my vantage point, the reception has been manifested by various positive conversations and online exchanges. It has also been evident in more formal ways, as Immerse has been featured in numerous reviews, year end lists and podcasts.
With this post I would like to say thank you for the support to whoever has appreciated, bought or proliferated the release.

I am pleased to see Immerse both featured in ambient or industrial sets as well as atmospheric techno sets. Do you know of a podcast with Immerse material not featured above? Let me know.
Great to see Vital Weekly still running, and I almost made it into the 1000th edition. Extensive and well-written reviews by Cyclic Defrost and ATTN Magazine.
