Soundboy Cookie and On1 come together to present a very unique and extremely limited physical only EP. To show the world exactly what they’re about, the EP presents a solid four tracks of start to finish sound-system pressure.

A2-BooKey

On1’s personal contribution to the EP, is the appropriately named “Boo Key”. Running with ghostly atmospherics and creepy samples, dancing around a wig splitting kick drum that pushes the track towards a drop, generates the impression On1 isn’t messing around. Sounding like a record perfectly fit for an old-skool pirate Rinse FM set, On1 expertly demonstrates his unique blend of UK Garage, Grime, and Drill.

B1-WarWithUs

And on the flip! The duo's second collaboration of the EP, and the titular track, “War with Us”. Ghostly pads and a crisp, dissonant drumline introduce the dancefloor to this beast of a track. On the drop, On1's Earth-shattering basslines and Cookie's choppy drums pace away as a distant vocal reminds the listener that, “nobody's tryna war with us!”. As the EP progresses, there is definitely a noticeable theme, dark and eerie - which is just how it should be!

B2-StepUp

Lastly – but most definitely not least – is Soundboy Cookies solo imprint on the EP. His personal style is all too prominent in this track; wonky basslines, hard drums, and his signature hip-hop vocal cuts tauntingly asking for competition to “Step Up”! An absolute tear out of a track which Soundboy Cookie is known too well for, makes for a perfect way to round off this EP.
