Last week, Republic Records recording artist Until the Ribbon Breaks earned rave reader reviews for Pressure, a shapeshifting, Mr. MFN eXquire-assisted cut that packed more ideas into four and a half minutes than many artists do into an EP. On the follow-up, the UK singer, songwriter and producer sets down the mic to put his distinctive stamp on a record by hitmaking labelmate The Weeknd. This version of Trilogy single Wicked Games superimposes original beatsmiths Doc McKinney and Illangelo‘s noirish guitar riffs over a more upbeat mix of synths and percussion, transforming the record from an R&B dirge into a moody New Wave dance cut. So, is this deft remix an improvement over the album version? Debate away—and keep it locked for the latest from both The Weeknd and Until the Ribbon Breaks.
