Background[edit]

Maurizio DeJorio was born on 24 September 1967 in Trento, Italy. DeJorio became involved in mainstream musical production in the mid-1980s.

Like most musicians in the Eurobeat genre, DeJorio has performed under a number of pseudonyms for various labels (including A-Beat-C, Delta, and SinclaireStyle). He is most well known for his two songs "Running in the 90s" and "Night of Fire".[citation needed] Both are being featured in the anime Initial D – of which both appearances (among other songs featured in the anime) has garnered incredible popularity for DeJorio and the eurobeat genre in general. Some of the other songs used in Initial D are: "Speedy Speed Boy", "Stop Your Self Control" (as 'Marko Polo'), "Running in the 90s" (as 'Max Coveri'), "Take Me to the Top", (as 'D. Essex'), "Golden Age", and "No One Sleep in Tokyo" (as 'Edo Boys'). Currently, DeJorio performs under the aliases Niko and Dejo for Bratt Sinclaire's label SinclaireStyle.

DeJorio had performed under the alias "Max Coveri", which had been used by Massimo Brancaccio before he adopted the drag queen alias Billy More.[2]
