Until the Ribbon Breaks Darkens Sway Clarke II’s ‘Secret Garden’ on New Remix
The U.K. producer lends a moodier atmosphere to the pop jam
Sway Clarke II’s “Secret Garden” — a recent single from the Berlin-based singer/songwriter — plays at being buoyant, piano-driven pop music. For his remix, U.K. producer Pete Lawrie Winfried, a.k.a. Until the Ribbon Breaks, removes the bright production of the original to a more downtempo, delicate rhythm. Winfried keeps Sway as the central focus but reduces his vocal theatrics to the ghostly looping of “I got a love to give,” an affecting proposition underscored by echoing ticks and intricate beat-work. The song retains its beauty highlighting a darker mood. Listen to Until the Ribbon Breaks’ remix of “Secret Garden” above.
