Maurizio De Jorio (Trient, September 24th) is an Italian Italo disco and Eurobeat musician, active since the mid-1980s.

Background[edit]

Like most musicians in the Eurobeat genre, Maurizio has performed under a number of pseudonyms for various labels (including A-Beat-C, Delta, and SinclaireStyle). Maurizio De Jorio is probably most well known for his song "Night of Fire" which he performed under the Niko alias. He is also incredibly popular for the songs he performed that appeared in the anime Initial D. Some of these songs include: Marko Polo - "Speedy Speed Boy", Marko Polo - "Stop Your Self Control", Morris - "Crazy for Your Love", D. Essex - "Take Me to the Top", D. Essex - "Music for Hire", Max Coveri - "Golden Age", Max Coveri - "Running in the 90s", Edo Boys - "No One Sleep in Tokyo", and Niko - "Night of Fire". Currently, De Jorio sings as Niko and Dejo for Bratt Sinclaire's label SinclaireStyle.

One of Maurizio's alias, Max Coveri, was originally used by Massimo Brancaccio, who later became the drag queen artist Billy More. [1]

One of his aliases, Marko Polo is not to be confused with the explorer Marco Polo.
