Arts & Crafts Mexico is an independent record label based in Mexico City. It is a branch of the Toronto-based company Arts & Crafts Productions. It started business in 2008, when Jeffrey Remedios and Kevin Drew decided to open an office abroad, in order to promote the independent music scene in Mexico. They produce records, as well as license material from other international labels.
Jeffery Remedios and Kevin Drew founded the label in 2002. One goal was to create a family relationship between the artists and the label. They concentrate on creating an environment that is not only composed of high quality bands, but that is also familiar and welcoming. Arts & Crafts opened a satellite office in Mexico City in 2008.
Arts & Crafts México focuses on supporting national and international talent, as well as the local independent music community. During the past years, they have released records of local bands such as Rey Pila, Torreblanca, Los Odio!, Chikita Violenta, Bam Bam, I Can Chase Dragons! and Movus.
