Later on, Mitya Fomin moved to Moscow where his friends producer Erica Chanturia and composer Pavla Esenina offered him to join Hi-Fi in 1998 with Oksana Oleshko and later on Tatyana Tereshina. Hi-Fi had a prosperous long career with debut album "Первый контакт" and further albums. Famous singles include "Не дано", "Беспризорник", "Глупые люди", "А мы любили", "Седьмой лепесток", and "Мы не ангелы" that were hits on the Russian charts.

Thew third single "Всё будет хорошо" (Everything's gonna be alright) featuring rapper StuFF. He also released an English-language version "Ok!" became a summer hit in Russia and Europe.

With these solo hits, he released at the end of 2010 his debut solo album Так будет (meaning So it will be) that included his hits and other rhythmic, relax, ambient and easy dance songs. He also released single "Перезимуем" again featuring StuFF with a video directed by Mitya himself.
