Mephisto biography

Maurizio D'ambrosio alias Mephisto was born in Verbania (Italy) on November 13th 1963. He started his career as DJ on the beginning of 1980. Du to his everlasting passion for music, he started to study self-taught all the recording studios innoations of that time like samplers, synthetizeds, effects, midi, etc. From 1990 to 1992 he practised these innovations in a disco club called Kursaal-Verbana, this was the beginning of his success. Between the disco and his little recording studio, he released the maxi single Euphemia in September 1991 (under the labels Palmares and Dance Opera). It became one of the most played records in discotheques, with 10 000 copies sold in Italy, but he did not get that much recognition.

In December 1992, he recorded, mixed and produced State Of Mind. On January 1993 it had reached #1 in all Italian dance charts, and in March it was the most sold single in Italy. He suddenly become very famous and appreciated, and started touring in the biggest Italian discos. His show was a mix of samplers, expanders, and high quick mix with records, together with a vocalist (which was a premiere).

In October 1993, the follow-up Keep On Groovin was released. He also did a remix of Corona's The Rhythm Of The Night.

In July 1994, he released under Palmares in Italy and Polydor in Germany the amazing eurodance single You Got Me Burnin Up. It featured the voice of Shunza (and an unknown rapper), and the maxi contains the following 4 mixes : Vocal Radio Remix, Bomba Deng Remix, Hard Tribal Remix & The Rap Remix. It went top 20 in almost all the European charts. Shunza (born in China in 1973) sung a lot of Mephisto tracks. Afterward, between 1998 and 2003, she went solo and did a fine career in Asia. In 1999, she won a big prize in Taiwan : the Golden Song Prize for best singer.

On December 1994 he climbed another step in his DJ career : a big discotheque in Lugano (Switzerland) offered him a one-year contract as resident DJ and artistic director. The same year, he released My Love and Back In Time.

At the beginning of 1996, he opened a new recording studio, and in March he created his own label Sisma Records. The first single to be produced under this label was the dream house single Voices. It was released as 3-tracks CD single and 9-tracks CD maxi. At the same moment, he was busy managing the discotheque Il Tokyo in Cannobio (Italy).

He kept on the dream house wave with the single Mystery Of Love, which had some success in France. It was licenced under ZYX in Germany and Remixed Records in Sweden.

1999 : he released Waitin' For Love, in the disco house style, followed by the single Superstition (both licensed under Airplay records in France)

2004 : after 5 years of silence, Mephisto was back with a double single, Simple Man / Simple Song.

2008 : a new version of State Of Mind was released under the name Phunk Investigation & Anthonio Napoli vs Mephisto.

2009 : Mephisto released a news single entitled The Beat Of The Bee.
