Production duties are only shared on "Pylons," which is co-produced by the Grammy Award-winning Frank Dukes (who's worked with Drake, Travis Scott and more) and underrated Toronto talent SlwJmz, who takes the reins on EP closer "Fruits," a standout. The latter track finds ShauN taking a slightly different approach — more hip-hop-driven than the other tracks. The song, with its super sexy flute sample, has a thick, down-South aesthetic reminiscent of OutKast's "Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik." "Closing In," which he released as a hypnotizing visual earlier in August, is another clear standout on the EP, elegantly chronicling the decline of a relationship.
Coming off a successful debut EP, Until Now, and an impressive list of high-profile festival appearances, EverythingOShauN had a lot of eyes on him — and as a second strategic step, Almost Everything delivers. While he fails to break any uncharted territory creatively, he's more than found his niche, and the results are beautiful. (GSX Music)
