Could planet Earth be considered a living being? And if so, could it be seen as the physical vessel of a planetary-level spiritual entity? Ancient Hinduism believed so and expounded it in The Upanishads: a collection of early sacred texts where such entity was named Sanat Kumara and inhabited the very center of the Earth, lodged in the wondrous city of Shamballa - these beliefs were later appropriated by western New Age sects of the early 20th century and turned into all manner of silly representations and distortions.

The idea of a conscious, thinking spirit at the centre of Earth's movements, cycles and magnanimous energy was the inspiration for the opening track on the second naive release by Photonz; accordingly, the tittle-track "Planetary Spirit" is an explosion of modulating energy and rhythm ready to blow raver's into gosebumps territory and full-on techno hysteria. Followed by "Badagas", the EP moves into brainy-but-percussive territory, full of synthetic resonant drums and UK bass sensibility.

On the flip we've got "Circumference", a driving and hypnotic techno track with synthesized bubble motifs and a steady four-to-the-floor beat. Ending things on a more leftfield tip, Photonz merges early Earth drone bass with Claro Intelecto-style FM bass and slowed-down latin funk rhythms on the true-to-theme track "Earth 2".
