In the meantime he began to produce himself, releasing massive tracks including Bakerloo Symphony, Iguana and Komodo to name a few, though his fame is mainly due to Lizard, a track that turned into a musical style, receiving awards and accolades from all territories, pushing Mauro to the Olympus of the Top 10 most popular DJs in the world.
In 2001 he began his metamorphosis, leaving Media records and creating the label Alchemy. His productions would vary in genres from dance to trance, the most sophisticated techno to an evolution of all that is homemade music.

For the Meganite events he has had on his side top artists known today as Chris Liebing, Marco Carola, Adam Beyer, Seth Troxler, Joseph Capriati and Paco Osuna to names a few, all playing alongside Mauro as Meganite regular DJs. Since the very beginning, the selection of artists chosen for Meganite has been of the highest quality for an evening mainly based on innovative electronic music, a cocktail of pure energy and emotion.
