From Arnej's Facebook page from the beginning of February:
Hello my friends, I know I've been gone a while but you know ... life? I'm sorry for not being more active on social media these days but if I'm being honest with you, I had nothing to say. Shocking I know, given how vocal I've been about various topics in the past, but I suppose that's also a part of getting older. The lockdown has given me enough time to think about a couple of things, my music being one of them. I've seen your messages come in over and over again asking about new music. Truth be told, I've been away but I've not stopped producing, in fact quite the opposite. I've made more music than I care to admit, and I know these seem like hollow words since the obvious question is ... "Well where is it?".
Many of you have picked up on the fact that my music hasn't really been the same since 2013/14 and you'd be right to point that out. I had lost my father during that period and I never fully came to terms with that loss. He was very instrumental in my musical life and that loss has resonated with me since.
It's no coincidence that I should choose to write this message on my Father's birthday, to let you know that everything is gonna be alright and that you'll be hearing from me extensively throughout this year and forward. I've produced enough music, ranging from progressive to techno and everything in between, to fill multiple albums.
I've seen your messages and had failed to answer them, for that I apologize. I hope you'll stick around to see what's been cooking in the lab all these years.
Happy birthday dad, I miss you.
