Will Smith Serves Up New Quarantine Mix: Hear ‘Lo-Fi Summertime Beats to Social Distance To’

Summer, summer, summertime, time to sit back and unwind! On Friday (July 10), Will Smith dropped his second quarantine mix on YouTube.

Titled “Lo-Fi Summertime Beats to Social Distance To,” the mix contains tracks by rising producers and artists including Yungmaple (“Two Door Coupe”), Rinse Cycle (“Solitude”), Bloopr (“Cold History”) and more.

The 90-minute mix kicks off with a popular quote by Smith from 2007 interview with CBS News, in which he admits, “I’ve never really viewed myself as particularly talented. Where I excel is ridiculous, sickening work ethic.”

As Smith’s voice echoes, the mix launches into Don_Solo’s “Sentimental Feelings” and the camera pans out to reveal an illustration of the rapper and DJ Jazzy Jeff. In the visual, the animated pals wear face masks, headphones and matching Bel Air Athletic hoodies from Smith’s latest capsule collection while safely hanging out in a sunny park.

Also featured heavily on the digital mixtape are NumbrXII, Cookin Soul and Enluv, all of whom contributed multiple tracks to Smith’s curated lo-fi vibe. “Lo-Fi Summertime Beats to Social Distance To” follows Smith’s earlier relaxation mix “Chill Beats to Quarantine To,” which he released back in March.
