IAMSOUND partnered up with Independent Label Market who returned to the USA for a second time on November 3, 2012 to host their first West Coast event, Independent Label Market: Los Angeles, Presented by Puma.
The event took take place at the Micheltorena Elementary School in Silverlake, and in typical ILM fashion, saw a host of exclusive releases, artist appearances and much more. Since launching in London on May 2011, Independent Label Market has brought together the founders of some of the World’s greatest Independent Record Labels on both sides of the Atlantic to sell their fresh vinyl produce directly to the public at that traditional goods exchange – a market stall. As the music industry embraces mp3s and a more digital strategy, Independent Label Market is proving to be an valuable reminder of how music retail can be a social affair; people hanging out together as a community and buying records. Independent Label Market : L.A. welcomed back Ninja Tune for their 3rd market, and were delighted to announce newcomers such as IAMSOUND, Mad Decent and Anti.
Participating labels included: 100% Silk, Anti, Anticon, Burger, Cool Summer, Delicious Vinyl, Dirty Bird, Eenie Meenie, Everloving, Friends of Friends, Frontier Records, Hit City USA, Hydra Head, IAMSOUND, Innovative Leisure, Kill Shaman, Mad Decent, Manimal Vinyl, Ninja Tune, Not Not Fun, Now Again, Om, Origami, Permanent, Stones Throw and White Iris.
