Producer J57 lets go of his newest sample free remix, this time taking on Cage’s track “The Void”. After being held on to for 2 years, J57 provides an interesting story behind the making of this remix and it’s meaning to him;
“This remix is really personal to me. One of my best friends/mentor, Bryan “Ports” Coyle (R.I.P), first put me on to Cage back in High School and I’ve been a big fan since. I received the call to remix a song for Cage from Jim at Soulspazm, just five minutes after receiving the absolutely devastating news that Ports passed away.
I was told that they needed the remix as soon as possible and I also found out that Port’s wake was that same night back home on LI. So, I rounded up the troops (mine and Ports’ crew, The BCF) to all meet up in Manhattan and roll together back to LI for the wake.
I had literally an hour to do this remix. I couldn’t even see straight but I knew I had to do this remix for Ports.
It’s an honor to remix a song for Cage / to have Mighty Mi co-sign me doing so. This remix is also me paying tribute to my brother Ports.”
