Playlist: Gilles Peterson's Look Up Pop Up
This week, mental health charity Safaplace has revealed their pop-up record store and bookshop Look Up, curated exclusively by DJ and tastemaker Gilles Peterson.
Taking place for one week only between 24th-30th September at Stoke Newington’s Edwards Lane Gallery, Look Up is a space to explore the positive connection between mental health and the arts while raising money for the increasingly vital work of mental health charities.
Gilles Peterson has lent his music expertise to collate a special selection of incredible books, artwork and music that will be on sale at Look Up. Ranging from ‘Strange Labrynth’ by author Will Ashon, to Jordan Rakei’s latest record ‘Wallflower’, to artwork from the incredible Connor Brothers, all proceeds from the sales will go to Safaplace, an emerging mental health charity set-up by Stoke Newington School and Sixth Form.
Gilles has also selected a stellar line up of guests who will all join him in store for interviews throughout the week, including drum and bass icon Goldie, fellow audio aficionado Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy, UNKLE’s James Lavelle, Hacienda favourite Dave Haslam and more.
As if all that isn't enough, intimate live performances will be taking place at The Old Church, with appearances from Jordan Rakei, Yazmin Lacey and Aaron Unknown, rounded off with a closing party on 4th October at North London hotspot Five Miles club with special guests Daphni, HAAi and more TBA.
