The End of Pause Music

"As of June 4th, 2013, and with the release of our 100th offering, Pause has officially decided to close its doors for good. In 2007, Eirik (Phlogiston) and myself (Disasterpeace) started Pause to create a home for ourselves and some of our favorite musicians to release music to the public. In 6 years, the internet has changed quite drastically, and we can safely say that our mission was a success, and that we're leaving at a time when access to chipmusic, and tools for musicians in general, have never been better. Many of those who were affiliated with Pause in the past have continued to succeed with great projects of their own, including the excellent netlabels Ubiktune (, Telefuture (, and Pterodactyl Squad (, all of which are worth checking out.
Our collection will remain online for as long as humanly possible, so that those who never had the opportunity to explore our catalogue may do so. Thank you to everyone who joined in our efforts to create a home for our music, and shared in its appreciation. Much love and respect!"

- Rich (and Eirik)

Thank you for an excellent netlabel. The curation at Pause ensured a high level of output from all involved.
