Not only was "Open System" Marco Carola's most accomplished work to date some years down the line, but looking in retrospective, it stood the test of time and remains his most elegant release ever. Smartly steering clear of the formula of his previous album, "Fokus", which was more of a collection of DJ tools aligned on one CD, here, he recorded a proper album, manifestin his true production talent, and proved that he was so much more than a DJ's producer (a might fine one, though!).

Marco Carola is the recognized global ambassador of Italian techno. It's a position he treats with the utmost care and respect-and one that stands him among the hallowed company of contemporary techno's leading practitioners. Hailing from Napoli in the south of the country, Marco was among a small group of DJs and promoters who quite literally built the city's scene from scratch back in the early-'90s. In retrospect the year proved to be pivotal. Marco released his second album, Open System (following on from 1998's The 1000 Collection), to widespread critical acclaim. Key German publication Groove deemed its multifarious, texturally rich approach to broken beats, techno and electronica worthy of their album of the year accolade. Renewal: for a 20-year veteran such as Marco, shedding your creative skin and following your instincts are fundamental means of remaining relevant.
Marco Carola (born 7 February 1975, Naples, Italy) is an Italian electronic musician and DJ. As a producer and label head, Carola has created labels like Design, Zenit, Question, One Thousands, D. i. and Music On. Carola has been releasing music on a selection of labels such as Minus, Plus 8 2M and Primate Recordings. In addition to five albums, including his latest ‘Play It Loud’ in 2011, Carola has also been responsible for a clutch of seminal mix compilations
In early 2001 Marco Carola moved to London (UK) after a two year period in Frankfurt and in October of that year Marco showed his vision of contemporary electronic music by releasing his second album (the first being a collection of the Thousand label releases) called ‘Open System’. With its mix of different styles – a combination and fusion of slower material, break-oriented electronica, melodic lines and experimental arrangements together with organic sounds and pads – Carola proved that he was indeed one of techno music’s true prime movers.
