From the first few seconds of Houis’ “Open & Repeat”, it’s the comforting warmth of the synths that lure our attention and hold it firmly.

The soundscape here feels like a summer dream with a tinge of gloom. It’s the lyrics we’re welcome to that carries the moody side of the track, and overall we’re left with a listening experience that’s not only vibrant yet also thought-provoking. I can’t neglect to mention the punchy drums as these really bring the track to life along with the tasteful percussion.
