School of X borrows his moniker from Eksskole - Copenhagen’s anti-establishment art school from the 1960s. A Danish collective of experimental artists, the group featured Andy Warhol collaborator Jørgen Leth, the art historian Troels Andersen, and artists Poul Gernes, and Per Kirkeby. “It was about learning from each other and being progressive,” explains School of X, aka. Danish producer, singer and multi-instrumentalist Rasmus Littauer. “There were no labels - anyone could could join. That philosophy is so cool and I really admire all those artists.” Based in Copenhagen, School of X has forged his own collective with a similar ethos. He has a studio in the district of Nørrebro with friend and fellow producer Vera, and runs in the same circles as Yangze, Vasco, and Liss. It’s a supportive atmosphere rich with collaboration, and after years of touring the world as a live drummer, the multi-talented artist is striking out with that spirit in mind.
