winter beats ’12

In M|H’s neck of the woods tomorrow is supposed to bring eight inches of snow, so what better time than now to post a winter mix from our friends at JonkMusic? Despite it being March, the unofficial start to spring, we wanted to help everyone still stuck in the cold through the weekend with some electric beats.

jonkmusic’s summer jams ’10

Jon Kjarsgaard (that’s pronounced cares-guard) of Jonk Music acts as a daily curator/aggregator for songs and writing clips from around the internet – he sorts through it all so you don’t have to. Jon was kind enough to volunteer to make us a mix while chatting over drinks a couple weeks ago, and compiled this lovely ode to sand, summer, and being in love. Whether you’re in a cubicle or oceanside, this mix is the sonic equivalent of salt-spray on summer skin.
