Concert by James Lavelle
LocationHammersmith Novotel London West, London, UK
VenueWorldwide FM

James Lavelle presented a mix on "including UNKLE classics, edits and exclusive tracks" on Gilles Peterson's Worldwide FM on September 27 2018,[1] the same date that he performed as part of UNKLE Redux as part Festival of Sound 2018. The mix was presumably pre-recorded because of this.

Lavelle also took part in a talk hosted by Gilles Peterson where they discussed their history together, The Man From Mo' Wax documentary, and how Lavelle felt when he was denied writing credits on UNKLE's Psyence Fiction.[2]

Both events were part of Gilles Peterson's Look Up pop up series of events.[3]

The Look Up series of talks were based around mental health within the arts, with proceeds from sales and tickets going to Safaplace, who support young people in understanding and dealing with their mental health.[4] Regarding the talk James Lavelle had the following to say "I was honoured to be asked to take part in last years Look Up event. Having dealt with years of issues of anxiety and addiction, I think it is very important to be able to have these conversations in the public domain and thoroughly support Look Up for their efforts.”[5]
