Marco Zonta Another magnificient album by 36. Colours In The Dark truly is a masterpiece of melodic ambient, like only 36 knows to do. One of his best albums! Difficult to choose a favourite track.

Steve Mahoney This is another Masterwork from 36. This is up there with so much of his great work. It's like a trip to Jupiter. A slowburn trip that just builds and builds. 36 is one of the most creative ambient electronic recording artists. He is very important in my music world. Do buy the new album on cd. Only 300 copies.

headbanger1979 This might be the strongest release by 36 so far. There's that signature sound that's instantly recognisable, there's flow and most surprising: songs, something that's hard in this overcrowded genre. It's my go to soundtrack when I'm in the mood to board a spaceship and travel past Jupiter - without looking back, without enough fuel to return. Favorite track: Colours In The Dark.

Marco Nava It's a long and emotional journey through uncharted landscapes, without abrupt interruptions. Lush soundscapes, haunting vocal samples, 36's trademark synths - with a twist of new. And plenty of b a s s! What's not to love about it? Favorite track: Colours In The Dark.

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.
