Danish producer Kasper Bjørke is set to release his new album and audiovisual project The Fifty Eleven Project with some of his close friends the Kasper Bjørke Quartet today, October 19. The project will evoke the emotional roller coaster that Bjørke has experienced over five years from 2011 to 2016. He was diagnosed with cancer, quickly operated on and then had five years of checkups before being told he was officially cancer free. It is a beautiful ambient project that captures that emotion and delivers it to the listener. In honor of the album, we got Bjørke to make us an ambient mix with some of his ambient favorite songs and a few tracks from the record.
"I tried to make a mix that made sense by combining current and all time favorite ambient tracks while obviously also adding a couple of compositions from the new album,” says Bjørke to Magnetic. “Putting together an ambient mix is somehow much more demanding than making club mixes that I have done so many times before, but I really like it!”
Listen to the mix and follow along with the tracklist. Pick up the album here.
