One of the most promising young DJs on the circuit right now, Elliot Schooling is part of a new generation of artists making waves in the capital.
First breaking through with the well-received EP ‘Disco Riddims’ via Phil Weeks’ Robsoul, Schooling is set to release further material this summer on labels including BeeYou Records & Appetite’s own imprint. His groove-laden sound is in high demand and has taken him to London’s best dance floors and beyond, including memorable sets at fabric, 93 Feet East, Village Underground, DC10, Lab11 and KOKO — along with international shows everywhere from Ibiza and Amsterdam to Barcelona, Rome and Marseille.
One half of the hugely successful Appetite brand (alongside school friend Liam Palmer) Schooling has invited and supported the likes of Kerri Chandler, The Martinez Brothers, ANOTR, Dan Shake and Chris Stussy. Elliot’s sets weave between classic, soulful and tech House, effortlessly blending in with the current sounds of his peers whilst simultaneously carving out one of his very own, giving a nod to the old school and showcasing a knowledge well beyond his years.
6 years since its conception, Appetite is now proving to be a serious force to be reckoned with in the scene. The brand has hosted some of House’s biggest heavyweights, including Kerri Chandler, Chez Damier and Jeremy Underground, whilst remaining an important proving ground for some of the finest up-and-coming underground selectors to play a consistently packed-out party. This summer, Schooling & Palmer ramp up the action, debuting the brand at Sonar’s off-week and even launching their first festival: Appetite on the Farm, a testament to the strength and consistency of a party that began with humble beginnings in Bristol, as an intimate gathering of friends, and has grown into a truly global affair.
