Theres nothing we love more at Liveschool than watching members of the community take the next step. When an artist has a well developed sound and a rising profile, that next step could be a move overseas. Here’s a snapshot of those who are in Europe and the UK this summer / our winter to spread their sound and cultivate a wider fanbase.

Our trainer Thom (aka Cop Envy) has recently made the jump to London and with his UK influenced house sounds its no surprise that he is making immediate inroads in the scene. His most recent EP has landed on the influential Hypercolour label, home to artists like Groove Armada, Dense and Pika and Luke Vibert.

Thom says of being in London “the main thing for me is proximity to other cities and countries. It makes it a whole lot easier to get booked, and the cities you can get booked in are so much more diverse. You can also get incredible Caribbean food.”

Liveschool Holiday Program

Also making the jump to London is Logic1000. After a huge moment earlier this year with her ripping 90s banger “Please Forgive Me” on Sumac Records, Logic1000 is going from strength to strength. With her bookings sorted worldwide and gigs at venues like London’s Printworks and an upcoming support for Four Tet, things are moving fast for Logic1000.

Another all time Liveschool favourite making the jump to Europe is DJ Plead aka Jarred Beeler. After throwing curveballs to the Australian party circuit for years as part of Black Vanilla, Beeler’s new alias DJ Plead has been getting some serious recognition internationally. In the recent months he has delivered a DJ mix for Fact Magazine, embarked on a European tour and had his music pressed to vinyl. As if that isn’t enough, his Sumac Records imprint is getting some serious love with features in i-D Magazine and releases like the heady Nexus Destiny project by Utility.

Jarred tells of his recent jaunt around Europe and the importance of making things happen in different territories:  “Because its relatively small geographically, its possible to play a lot of shows in small space of time. In my experience thats helped me learn really quickly what works and what doesn’t.”

And for networking: “Meeting people face to face is also a real benefit of being over there for a tour. When you make friendships, music-related opportunities appear in unexpected ways. Australian labels are increasingly respected over there”

After a big year at home, former student Andy Garvey is making inroads on the European club scene. Coming off the back of her Eternal Recurrence record on Lobster Theremin, Andy has signed up with One House Artists and is embarking on a massive tour across the UK and Europe. She has dropped this mix for Berlin’s Oscillate party ahead of her appearance there kicking off her tour in August.

A post shared by Katie Campbell (@rozaterenzi) on


We have been big fans of Katie Campbell since she first started releasing music as Catlips in 2012. Fast forward a few years and her newest project Roza Terezni has been making a big impression worldwide. Following on from a release on the influential Dutch label Dekmantel this year, Katie has been the subject of a Breaking Through feature on Resident Advisor, announced a European tour and will be appearing at Dekmantel festival at the end of summer. Its a long way from the Liveschool rooftop to Berghain, but Katie has proved that serious work ethic and a consistent artistic vision can take you there.
