In devastating circumstances, Brown Bag AllStars member J57 received a request to produce a remix for Cage’s track “The Void”. I say devastating circumstances as his mentor and good friend “Ports” had passed away and J57 was notified literally minutes after the news of the passing that he had one night to complete the remix. In a tribute to Ports, J57 did an excellent job on the remix which has finally been made available for listening to the public. You can listen to Cage – The Void (J57 Remix) on the soundcloud player below.
