Artifact is a trans built, owned, and operated Recording/Mixing/Mastering studio that exists at the intersection of professional audio and DIY Punk

Located in Maspeth, Queens and ran solely by Audio Engineer and Musician Nate Patsfall, Artifact features a large+well lit live room, two spacious ISO's, and a myriad of fantastic recording+musical equipment. The studio was founded on the principle that the record-making process should be empowering, affordable, and accessible to anyone committed to making great art.

Artifact's day rate is $250 for ~10 hours of recording time, and includes me (Nate) engineering! Smaller subdivisions are possible depending on your needs.

Mixing and Mastering rates are specific to the length, genre, and format of your material, so please include those details in your message!

If you’re in a band that’s touring through NYC, I also offer one day live sessions at the studio the day before/after your gig, and the entire project is discounted!
