Following his fatal DUI traffic accident, Polish DJ Tom Swoon has retired from music. The former Spinnin Records artist remains in police custody and awaits what could be a 12-year sentence. Swoon delivered the following message through his supposed team via his Facebook:

“I want to apologize from the bottom of my heart,” Tom Swoon writes, “first and foremost to the family that has lost their loved one. I cannot imagine the pain that I have unwillingly inflicted to them that feral night and which is probably still with them now. I am also sorry that I’ve let all of you down. I still can’t understand how all of this could have happened. Although I have already made peace with a fact, that there is a very [harsh] verdict ahead of me.

“Living with a thought that you took part in taking someone else’s life away is the most terrible thing that has ever happened to me,” he continues. “There is no day when I wouldn’t think about it. No words to describe how much I regret all of what happened.”

Read the original message below:

“Dear fans, dear friends:

I was thinking about reaching out to you for a long time now.
But for many various reasons I kept postponing this moment. Today, I’m finally feeling ready to share my story with you.

Exactly six months ago, on December 5th 2017 I have caused a traffic accident while driving under the influence of alcohol, which led to a death of one person. I have pleaded guilty and got immediately arrested, where I’m currently waiting for my trial to start.

I am writing this letter because I want to apologize from the bottom of my heart- first and foremost to the family that has lost their loved one. I cannot imagine the pain that I have unwillingly inflicted to them that feral night and which is probably still with them now. I am also sorry that I’ve let all of you down. I still can’t understand how all of this could have happened. Although I have already made peace with a fact, that there is a very harash verdict ahead of me.

Living with a thought that you took part in taking someone else’s life away is the most terrible thing that has ever happened to me. There is no day when I wouldn’t think about it. No words to describe how much i regret all of what happened.

I still don’t know when I will get to see the life outside of prison, but I know that I want to leave this place as a completely different person, having a completely new life. That’s why I have made a call to end the “Tom Swoon” project for a good. It’s time for me to focus on things way more important than a musical carrer. I am sorry that it all ended so quick… and in a such tragic way.

Yours truly, -Dorian”
