Danheim is a Nordic folk/Viking inspired project from the Copenhagen-based Danish producer Mike Olsen, a man with 8 years of experience in electronic and ambient music – focusing on Nordic Folk and Viking age inspired music with a certain Nordic authenticity or mood. Danheim’s music is often composed of ideas and stories based on the darker side of the Viking period, inspired or consisting of Nordic Mythology, old Danish folklore, and a vivid imagination.
Mike Schæfer Olsen, (born in 1985, Brøndby, Denmark), transitioned to focus on music in the early 2000’s and has been composing music almost continuously ever since, alongside doing radio shows and game production.
A deep connection to his Danish roots and heritage have fueled his interest in the Nordic Folk/Viking music genre, even more since he started the Danheim project.
“I hope to bring the Viking era and early Nordic history to life through my music and interests in Nordic mythology and folklore”
