Roofless Records is an independent record label, producer and publisher based in Miami, FL. Roofless Records focuses predominantly on experimental music by Florida artists. All music is released as limited-edition vinyl records or cassette tapes. In an interview with the Miami New Times, Roofless Records co-founder Matt Preira says, "We deal in the business of objects and moments." Roofless Records is a finalist in the 2011 Knight Arts Challenge Miami grant competition, funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to support emerging artists and arts organizations.

Roofless Records was founded in 2007 by Dana Bassett and Matt Preira. Bassett and Preira met and began the project as undergraduate students at the New College of Florida in Sarasota, FL. On naming the label, Preira explains, “It rolls off the tongue, and I appreciated the cognitive dissonance inspired by a house with a roof that says ‘Roofless’ under it. I also appreciated the resonance with Magritte’s This Is Not A Pipe painting, plus Eazy-E ran Ruthless Records (pronounced Roofless).”
