Gilles Peterson is curating a string of events in London, in aid of the youth mental health charity Safaplace. 

The Worldwide FM don and Brownswood label leader will be hosting sessions at new pop up record and book store Look Up, at Stoke Newington's Edwards Lane Gallery from Monday 24th to Sunday 30th September. 

Renowned for his selections, Peterson will curate the contents of the shop for the entire week. Specially chosen items available to buy will include author Will Ashon's latest book, 'Strange Labyrinth', Jordan Rakei's new record, 'Wallflower', and artwork from The Connor Brothers.  

An impressive list of electronic talent will also be present throughout the takeover, including Goldie, Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy, James Lavelle and Dave Haslam. Live performances will be held at The Old Church, with appearances from the aforementioned Rakei, Yazmin Lacey and Aaron Unknown.

Following the seven-day residency a closing party is planned for Five Miles on 4th October featuring the likes of Daphni and HAAi. All proceeds will go to Safaplace, which focuses on mental health problems amongst school-age young people.

Mental health is currently a major topic being addressed by a number of organisations and figures in the dance music community. DJ Mag recently highlighted the efforts of London venue The Cause in raising funds to tackle and awareness around the subject, published Sasha's thoughts on the risks of relentless touring and partying and an interview with Luciano, in which the Ibiza legend discussed his own struggle with psychological problems.
