After 13 years of releasing pioneering dubstep and bass music, one of the most historic independent record labels in the electronic scene is shutting down for good.

Never Say Die has unexpectedly announced its disbandment, revealing the tragic news in a statement disseminated by the label via its social media.

"We’re immensely proud of everything the label has done to impact the genre the way it has, but the simple truth is that we’ve achieved everything we set out to do (and more) in this industry, and it’s time for the team to move onto other things," reads the statement. "Our legacy lives on, and the catalogue will be available to stream forever."

The statement also notes that fans will still be able to stream Never Say Die's catalog indefinitely and the label's proprietors do not have plans to remove its existing music from digital service providers like Spotify.

The news comes just over a year after their sub-label, Never Say Die: Black Label, was shuttered. Days prior, they waded into the NFT movement by releasing a collection called "Rebirth."
