[<< wikipedia] Maurizio De Jorio
Maurizio De Jorio (born September 24, 1968) is an Italian-American singer, active since 1991. Maurizio De Jorio was born in Trento, Italy. De Jorio became involved in mainstream musical production in the mid-1980s.
Like most musicians in the Eurobeat genre, De Jorio has performed under a number of pseudonyms for various labels (including A-Beat-C, Delta, and SinclaireStyle). He is most well known for his songs "Running in the 90s" and "Night of Fire". 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" (as Max Coveri), and "No One Sleep in Tokyo" (as 'Edo Boys').
De Jorio's musical origins are unknown, but in 1991, Gino Caria had taken him to A-Beat-C and signed him to the record, beginning his Eurobeat career. His first song that he lended his vocals to was "Love & Celebration" by David Essex. in 1992, he had started working with Andrea Leonardi (Bratt Sinclaire), who was currently freelancing for the label. He split from A-Beat-C later in the mid 1990s to join Sinclaire and his newly co-founded Eurobeat label, Delta s.r.l, which was also co-founded by Laurent Schruster Gelmetti (Laurent Newfield) and Clara Moroni, who had both worked at Time Records. De Jorio had worked with Newfield and Moroni for a good number of songs, which in 2019, were released on the Delta Ultimate Collection and Bratt Sinclaire Eurobeat Style album compilations. Currently, DeJorio performs under the aliases Niko and Dejo for Bratt Sinclaire's label SinclaireStyle.
De Jorio had performed under the alias "Max Coveri", which had previously been used by Mauro Farina, then by Massimo Brancaccio before he adopted the drag queen alias Billy More.

== Inclusion in other media ==
Many of his songs are used for fad music on the website, YTMND.
His promotional model, Edoardo Arlenghi, is used in place of his own image for the marketing of songs under his pseudonym "Niko".  He can be seen most prominently in the music video for the song "Night of Fire".
De Jorio's #1 worldwide hit Night Of Fire was originally sung by Edoardo Arlenghi but was changed at the last moment.
Various songs including "Night of Fire", "Speedy Speed Boy", and "Running in the 90s" are featured in the Japanese anime Initial D, which contributed to the popularity of eurobeat music. Additionally, "Running in the 90s" became an Internet meme due to its inclusion in Initial D, being played in many videos where vehicles are seen driving at high speeds.
