Until The Ribbon Breaks

Until the Ribbon Breaks (also referred to as UTRB) refers to the custom of making mixtapes, played over and over "until the ribbon breaks." Winfield’s first single, “Pressure,” was released in 2013, accompanied by a homemade video that incorporated scenes from David Lynch’s 1997 classic Lost Highway. A second track, "2525," was released several months later, after which Winfield earned global critical acclaim from the likes of NPR, KCRW, Pitchfork, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, FADER, COMPLEX and many more, and was asked to remix for artists such as The Weekend [Wicked Games], Sam Smith [Nirvana], as well as Lorde [Royals] and London Grammar [Sights] who both invited UTRB to open for their respective North American tours. More recently, he re-imagined tracks for FINNEAS [What They’ll Say About Us] and Toots and the Maytals [Got To Be Tough], and produced the debut album from Thunder Jackson. Until The Ribbon Breaks also collaborated with hip hop duo Run The Jewels and appeared on their 2013 release “Job Well Done.” The pair also featured on UTRB’s 2014 release “Revolution Indifference.”

Fast forward to 2024, and Until the Ribbon Breaks has reached a brilliant new wate
