To coincide with its 10th anniversary, the endlessly influential PC Music label — founded by producer A. G. Cook — will stop releasing new music after 2023.

"After a decade of activity, 2023 will be PC Music's final year of new releases," the collective wrote in an Instagram post over the weekend. "Following that, the label will be dedicated to archival projects and special reissues."

They added, "We have an undisclosed number of new albums and singles coming very soon."

To mark the occasion, PC Music has compiled a 100-minute playlist featuring music from their artists, old and new, and made it available to stream. It includes tracks from Cook, Kane West, Easyfun, Dux Content, Ö, Grrl, Umru, Datalord, Caro♡ and Bopples.

PC Music became an institution in 2010s electronic and hyperpop music after its founding in 2013, skyrocketing the careers of Danny L Harle, Hannah Diamond and Hyd. Despite never having been signed to the label, the late great SOPHIE was a frequent collaborator and contributor. Charli XCX, Caroline Polachek, Carly Rae Jepsen, Kero Kero Bonito and Rebecca Black have also been involved in PC Music releases.

The label released its most recent compilation album, Volume 3, last year.
