Aww, bittersweet news from the Disko Warp scene. After 8 years, it seems that Pete is feeling burnt out and will be taking a break from Disko Warp for the foreseeable future. More details on his decision can be found in a series of Tumblr posts:

In the meantime, Pete is making the entire Disko Warp back catalog (sans licensed covers) available for FREE on SoundCloud. Best of luck, Pete! Hopefully one day you can come back feeling refreshed and ready to make more great music!
