Monarchy significantly raises the profile of Edmonton-raised Mosh (Adam Bignell), propelling him from the underground into greater realms of influence.

This third solo project of Vancouver producer Nick Wisdom carries a mark of quality and boasts a grandly enjoyable repertoire of loops and samples.
