Spheres Of Consciousness arrives after a period of ill health for , who until recently was taking an extended break from music due to suffering loss of mobility and experiencing chronic pain from a spinal birth defect.

According to , the EP “represents a rising up, an embracing of life” and sees the producer “back, healthier than ever, and in control”. Making connections between the mind-expanding potential of rave and her own struggles, physical and mental, with ill health, Spheres Of Consciousness marks a personal journey through theories of existence.

Each track represents a different level of existence, from the lowest level, ‘Existence’, which is the domain of hard minerals, to the fungi and plant life that resonate as ‘Growth’, the animals that act on ‘Instinct’, human life that relies on ‘Intellect’ and finally ‘Intuition’, the highest, non-material sphere of consciousness.

For the suitably head-spinning video, Smurphy has enlisted the editing expertise of David Coss to smash together a wide array of footage taken from Pexels to create a kinetic montage of human existence.
