About Us – Our History
Basement Floor Productions is one of the oldest, continuously running music production companies and recording studios in the Baltimore area. That’s because we are good at what we do. We have been serving the Music Industry for more than 35 years. Our combined experience with musicians, clubs, record companies, TV, radio, equipment manufacturers, trade magazines, distributors and fans have allowed us to become one of the most sought after music production companies on the East Coast.
Basement Floor Productions was created by brothers Tim, Mark, & Roland Miskimon in the 1980′s as a company to promote their new up and coming rock band, Basement Floor. All bookings and recording agreements were arranged through this company so that the band could maintain some control over their musical endeavors
After the band negotiated several recording contracts, Tim & Mark felt it was time to start their own recording studio. The original studio, which opened in December, 1979, started out as an 8-track analog setup and was used primarily for the recording of the band’s demos. When the band signed a recording contract with Atlantic Records, it became obvious that the studio needed to grow.
To create an additional income that would allow them to expand the studio’s capabilities, Tim started to record local bands, (most of them were friends) & began recording radio promo spots. By the late 1980′s Basement Floor Productions became a popular place for talented musicians in the Baltimore-Washington area to record their demos and independent releases.
