PC Music to Stop Releasing New Music After 2023

    PC Music, the label that A. G. Cook founded in 2013, has announced it will not be releasing new music after this year. “After a decade of activity, 2023 will be PC Music’s final year of new releases,” reads a statement on the label’s website. “Following that, the label will be dedicated to archival projects and special reissues. We have an undisclosed number of new albums and singles coming very soon. For now, 10 x 10 minutes of content from the past, present & future. Personal Computer Music forever.”

    To celebrate PC Music’s 10th anniversary, the label has shared a 100-minute mix of old and new music featuring contributions from Cook, EASYFUN, Ö, GRRL, Kane West, umru, Datalord, caro♡, BOPPLES, and Dux Content. Listen to it below.

    Founded by Cook in London a decade ago, PC Music helped define the sound of hyperpop and internet pop, which was often paired with displays of ironic consumerism. After gaining traction with singles like ‘Hey QT’, a collaboration between Cook, Sophie, and the performance artist Hyd, many of its producers began working with artists outside the PC Music universe, including Charli XCX, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Caroline Polachek.
