The Craftsmen are three dysfunctional producers that have created a funk-punk-hip-hop dance party all in one! This experimental soundscape tickles your funny bone while simultaneously breaking your femur! The crew hails from Collingswood, New Jersey to Portland, Maine and members consist of Consolation Prize, Dynamo-P, and Micodin.

The debut album was recorded in the spring/summer of 2014. Pat Jones (DYNAMO-P) and Michael Thompson (MICODIN) had finished up their golden-era hip-hop album, SERIOUS PROBLEMS, and were looking to explore new waters. They approached Kent Green (Consolation Prize), who grew up playing in the punk rock scene of Philadelphia, to do some remixes for their singles. This quickly evolved into an album when they heard how well their individual sounds gelled. A mix of heavy drums and hard-hitting sonic funk are a staple in their unique sound.

Micodin did the production/mixing, Dynamo-P handled vocals and raps, and Consolation Prize dabbled in both. Jay Ruch, of 0x1 Sound Studio, worked on the final mixing/mastering.

The first single, PICK UP NEW TRANSMISSIONS, really showcases the talent and style that is The Craftsmen. Crunchy drums, blips, and heavy bass line lay the foundation as Dynamo and Consolation narrate tales of love, loss, and Mickey Mouse. It takes the listener on an unpredictable ride!
