Career[edit]

Mysterio first became recognized in 2007 for his first single "Answer This" (featuring Linda Newman).[5][6][7] Mysterio's debut release, "Roll Wit It" was released in 2008 by Spinnin Records and featured the vocals of Chris Willis (singer of David Guetta anthems "Love Is Gone" and "Gettin' Over You").

On January 2, 2009, Mysterio released a cover remix version of "One More Time" by Daft Punk.[8] The song reached #1 on Russia's Top 20, and was a club hit in the United States first played by Felli Fel on Power 106 in Los Angeles.

Mysterio released "Tomorrow", featuring Samantha Fox, which debuted on radio worldwide on August 7, 2009, on stations worldwide, including: NRJ, Power 106, and Radio 538.[9][10][11] It has since been signed by Sony Music.[12] and included on Samantha Fox's Greatest Hits (2009) as the only track that was recent, as of that time.
