Joe Kay's Slowed Edit of Jaden Smith's "Fast (Gravez Remix)"

Last week was a big week for Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s kids. While little sister Willow released a track using a sample from the XX, older brother Jaden unexpectedly dropped a short video, entitled “Fast,” flaunting a decent flow to a simple, but drum-heavy beat.

Quick on the trigger, mysterious producer Gravez shared an intriguing remix of the brief track. The remix with a first smooth R&B synth, but quickly juxtaposes that with a relentless SBTRKT-like chorus. At barely over a minute, I have been killing the repeat button.

With the track surpassing 70k plays on SoundCloud in less than 5 days, influenced Soulection’s co-founder Joe Kay shared his own slowed edit. It retains the same vibe of the original, but drops Jaden’s voice a couple octaves for the slower tempo.

The rightful heirs to Bel Air’s throne have shown interesting taste working with Ta-Ku in the past year. It will be intiguing to see how the 16-year-old Jaden and 13-year-old Willow continue to mature.  Listen to both the Gravez remix and Joe Kay’s edit below.
