Earlier this week we caught up with a man who’s been consistently influencing the face of techno music for almost two decades. Hailing from Naples in Italy, Marco Carola is one of the most highly respected and hard working dj/producers in EDM today, touring relentlessly, while also holding down a Monday night residency with Cocoon at Ibiza’s Amnesia during the summer months.
This year saw the release of Play It Loud! on Richie Hawtin‘s Minus label, marking the first full length record from Carola since Open System which dropped on his own Zenit imprint 10 years ago. So already 2011’s been a huge year for Marco Carola who’s just returned to Europe after a Stateside tour. We were lucky enough to catch up with him during a rare break in his hectic schedule, and here’s how it played out:

This week I can’t seem to get enough of Marco Carola‘s Essential Mix for Radio 1. One of the pioneers of tech-house in Europe in the 90s, his illustrious career has so far seen releases on Cocoon, Zenith, and Richie Hawtin‘s Plus 8 and Minus labels, to name a few. Next week, he’s putting out his latest mix album for the Fabric label, with a launch party on Saturday 26th at Fabric in London.
If you’re LA based, head down to Beyond Wonderland next month and catch him alongside Hawtin, M.A.N.D.Y. and Jamie Jones in the Chess Village, the lineup is huge. More on that later, in the meantime here’s two hours of the some of world’s finest tech-house. Bliss out –
