Speaking about the album, Arjun said: "With this concept album, I’ve gone back to my roots, to a sound that truly represents me - it's fast, stripped down and hypnotic - paying homage to the ethos of classic Techno, yet firmly looking to the future."

In an Instagram caption penned by Arjun, he states: “In my 20-odd years of producing music, I’ve released tons of singles & EPs. The idea of an LP has come up several times - I’ve even written a couple along the way, but somehow the timing was never quite right. The last year has been tough on so many fronts, but has also given us time to introspect, go deeper, and maybe even rediscover our roots. ⁣
