Devout TroyBoi and Stööki Sound fans drape themselves in metallic armor preparing for an audible “Warrior” voyage. Historic horns and marching paced percussion set the tone of the seemingly traditional paean, until they stand on the mountain’s peak looking down at their enemies (or haters). A basic snare roll doesn’t cut it. Alternatively, the United Kingdom Grime Gods’ buildup sounds similar to strong wind gust, up until the invasion of a hip-hop drop occurs. Preceding the song’s climax, 808 sub woofers, flutes and Super Mario sound effects appear without warning. TroyBoi and Stööki Sound throw up the middle finger at basic beats by taking the road less traveled. The partnership’s true victory is composing idiosyncratic work that exemplifies their London roots.
