Refreshing Holiday Music by snowflake and ccMixter

Please note this disclosure.

The next generation music label ArtisTech Media has just released what in some years down the road may just turn out to be remembered as an iconic holiday album. "Peace of Winter" represents some intriguing, yet accessible remixes in some of the best ccMixter.org tradition. From the beautiful and sublime, to the worldly exotic and even a refreshing hint of quirkiness, this album has it all. The spectrum ranges from inter-faith classics to new expressions of the joys of winter.

This compilation has been curated by exquisite songstress snowflake, who herself is impressively comfortable on both sides of the remixing console.

And in the holiday spirit of promoting peace and sharing between communities, half of the proceeds from this album will be donated to the Dalai Lama Foundation.

While the album can be listened to and even downloaded for free, those who want to express support for the music makers and their cause can also purchase a copy or leave an online "tip".

This is quite a milestone for the ccMixter community and the team at ArtisTech Media, who have just recently assumed the responsibility to operate the ccMixter community while keeping it free for everyone. Maybe one of many more to come?
