It’s DJ Twin’s 1st day in the spotlight, as he drops his debut EP
DJ Twin is a producer and DJ based in Chicago and LA. He came up as Sean Kingston’s tour DJ, and now he drops his debut EP Day 1. Although he only contributes 2 beats on the whole tape – the French Montana opener “Hope U Don’t Mind” and Kodak Black highlight “Lonely” – he definitely had a vision for this project. There is a lot of happy upbeat trap production in the style of the ATL great Zaytoven, matched with slurred flows from rappers like Famous Dex, Lil Yachty and Playboy Carti. The strongest moment of this project, and also its fatal flow, is a Sean Kingston feature on every track.
Kingston has amazing chemistry with every rapper on this tape. His helium-enriched autotune voice shines on every song. However, this makes Day 1 more of a Sean Kingston mixtape, than a DJ Twin EP. Still ,this is a great EP, featuring some of the hottest rappers of the moment on breezy, summery trap beats. Also, it showcases Sean Kingston’s serious versatility and talent: he can fit perfectly on a bubblegum trap song with Lil Yachty (“Honor Roll”), or he can be a real badman on a track like “Gun Shot.”
Highlights: “Honor Roll”, “Lonely”, “Booted Up”, “All I Wanted”
