True or False? The Weeknd has got some fire tracks… very true. Between the deep, intriguing vocals and sexy, soulful R&B beats, every song touches you in its own seductive way. Then, when you think it can’t get any better, a producer comes along and remixes a track, making it that much better. (See our The Weeknd Remix Round-ups Part I & II.)
Wales-based producer Until The Ribbon Breaks (Pete Lawrie) released some new music this week and among the tracks was this gem: a remix of The Weeknd’s “Wicked Games” that’s sure to make its way into your iTunes’ Most Played list. Until The Ribbon Breaks, who is also known for his background in film, treats his listeners with an accompanying music video making this remix a true one-of-a-kind. The visual re-imagination of “Wicked Games” features an engaging collage of scenes from David Lynch’s 1997 film Lost Highway, adding to the profundity and expressiveness of The Weeknd’s music.
UTRB also recently released his single “Pressure” via Universal Republic, which is now available on iTunes. Peep the video for his remix of “Wicked Games” below, and keep your eyes/ears open for more material from Until The Ribbon Breaks, who we hear is working on a debut album due later this year.
