Mancunian DJ and producer Sharda will release a new EP this month.
Releasing EPs on Coil and Conducta's Kiwi Rekords to name but a few, Sharda follows up his two-tracker for the latter, 'Peace & Love', presenting six new tracks in the form of 'Champage Circuits'.
Role-casters are looking for people aged between 18 to 30 to appear in a film about legendary Manchester institution, The Haçienda.
A casting agency in Manchester wrote in their advert that they were "looking for talent for a film about the 90's music scene in Manchester. This is paid assignment to be filmed between 20th January and 21st February. There will be some large crowd days recreating scenes in the famous Hacienda."
Sharda will drop a new EP via Local Action Records next month.
The first release since his two-track 'Peace & Love' EP on Conducta's Kiwi Rekords earlier this year, the Manchester-based DJ and producer returns with 'Champagne Circuits'.
Slated for release on the 6th December, the six-tracker is a mix of bassline and UK garage, and 'Ravecity Riverfront' is available to stream now.

Fox will release his debut album later this month.
Titled 'Juice Flow', the Manchester MC's maiden full-length will land on 18th October via Manchester party crew and label collective Swing Ting.
It's not Fox's first appearance on Swing Ting. The Levelz crew member released his 2016 EP 'Musik' via the label too.

After a few stop-start attempts on a Native Instruments Maschine Mikro, it was on a sick day from work that Anz made the first track on her Soundcloud page “for my 13 followers” – no days off, remember. “It was like an R&G thing with some harmonies,” she remembers. “I left it on there for two or three years! I still really, to my memory, like it! I could even sample it.”
