IAMSOUND Records was founded in 2006 by Niki Roberton as a creative brand and entity based in music, flexible enough to keep pace with the changing industry. Building the label as a source and destination to discovering new music, IAMSOUND has developed into a place where people will turn to look for cutting-edge sounds, whether it is through the artists they release, events they put on, or their many other ventures.

Formerly a Partizan video director, Roberton opted to discover and develop new talent rather than shoot their videos and now runs the label day-to-day with Paul Tao (of AbsolutePunk.net) . In 2010, Anh Do joined the team to help run the company’s management and events departments with a background in marketing and PR, as well as years curating the gallery and directing music and cultural programming at Los Angeles’ Space 15 Twenty arts and commerce space.
