The label, which is run by hyperpop producer A. G. Cook, announced the end of its new releases via an Instagram post on Sunday (June 25) — writing: "After a decade of activity, 2023 will be PC Music’s final year of new releases."
"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," it continued.

PC Music began life in 2013, as a direct to SoundCloud platform, being described by Cook in an interview with Tank Magazine: “The label’s called PC Music, which alludes to how the computer is a really crucial tool, not just for making electronic music but for making amateur music that is also potentially very slick.”
The label also frequently collaborated with artists such as the late SOPHIE, Kero Kero Bonito and Carly Rae Jepsen. Cook has also embarked on a range of collaborative projects with artists such as 100 gecs and Caroline Polachek, as well as creatively directing projects with Charli XCX .
