Today we’re happy to share a very special mix with you, brought to us by long-time friend of Stan Ray, Shari-Vari records aka Patrick Little.
Patrick Little, from the UK, started collecting records roughly 20 years ago and at the same time started working at Vinyl Exchange - Manchester’s best known 2nd hand record store.
He’s thrown various parties over the years, most notably several with Jon K at Brilliant Corners, London.
He has been a regular guest and occasional host of the NTS DoYou! breakfast show and still makes occasional appearances on the new DoYou! radio station and Skylab Melbourne when time allows.
Patrick moved to Australia and subsequently launched Shari-Vari Records online in June 2021, specialising in Ambient, Experimental, House, Techno, Soul, Disco, Dub & Tropical sounds. Following the success of his online store he opened in a physical space, a shop in shop at Shop Man-tle, the retail space of Perth brand Man-tle. Fast forward to today and Shari-Vari records is based in a stand-alone shop in Perth’s historic State Buildings.
Outside of his heavy involvement with music, records and Djing, Patrick also had a long and successful career in fashion and menswear, with stints at Oi Polloi and Norse Projects and not forgetting his work for Gimme 5, Adsum, Studio Nicholson and also Stan Ray!
We’re blessed to finally feature this mix, it’s a treat.
