emphox I am not afraid to confess this album is the most significant piece of contemporary music I have heard in my entire life. It blew me away and lifted me up again like nothing ever did before. Deep, deep healing. With Tears running over my face I want to say: Dennis, you are a titan. Big respect and thanks for what you are doing.

Mads Linden Loved your work ever since I discovered you thru your asip isolatedmix 12 soon 10 years ago. This album is just amazing. Sets for me one of those life markers or what to call it. And with you sharing your background of the album makes it even deeper as I have been there as well. Can’t set a favorite track as it seems rude to the other beautiful tracks. Thank you so much and please don’t stop.

about

I wrote 'Colours In The Dark' after an extended period of complete musical inactivity. Earlier in the year, I suffered with depression for the first time in my life, which really shook me. I've always battled with anxiety, but this was on a whole different level. The lights just completely went out and nothing seemed to matter. Days were spent existing rather than something to look forward to. I lost all desire to work on music, which only exacerbated things further. It's a terrible feeling and not really something you can truly understand unless you are cursed to experience it for yourself. I don't usually share such things publicly, but I realise that many other people are suffering in silence right now and taking that first step to acknowledge you may need help is perhaps the hardest part. It certainly gave me a higher perspective on things, especially among the backdrop of what has been an awful year for the world as a whole. My troubles were tiny in comparison, but when you're battling with your mental health, your worldview shrinks to the macro level and nothing else seems to matter.

But the light did eventually return and my love for music came back into focus. It's why this isn't a sad album. I wanted to use this negative experience and try to turn it into a positive. While I'll never be able to write a feel-good pop song, I can channel the darkness and try to find those impossible colours hiding inside it. If nothing else, this is certainly one of the most personal albums I have ever wrote. If the trope about artists making their best work when they struggling is true, then you guys are in for a treat! I'm doing much better now. If you're currently struggling, then I hope this record can help you find your colours again too. Lets look after each other.
