DJ Micro began his techno journey on the East Coast in 1991. He played a key role in forming Caffeine Records group that began as a weekly club night. Shortly after, its popularity grew into an actual brand name with a club and clothing line. As a result, Micro gyrated at what seemed to be endless Caffeine parties, specializing in break beat, a type of electronic dance music that went all night long.
In 1994 DJ Micro hooked up with Vicious Vic under the alias Progression. Once they released their debut single “Reach Further,” they soon became widely popular in the international dance music arena. Shortly thereafter, the duo was commissioned to remix artists like Paradise 3001, Masters at Work, Joe T. Vanelli and the X-Files theme.
Micro was definitely a well-known DJ by the end of the ‘90s and recorded two mix albums for Roadrunner titled Coast to Coast and Caffeine: The Natural Stimulant. Later, he met up with Moonshine Music and released Micro Tech-Mix, which followed with quite a few mix albums. He ended up releasing one mix album a year. Micro slowly changed his style as he worked on each album, moving toward trance and different forms of electronic dance music. However, he still maintained his break beat connection. By the time the millennium ended, he was one of the top DJs on the East Coast.
Today, DJ Micro is an experienced techno producer who gyrates as a spin master. He holds an extensive history in the DJ musical scene. The Caffeine club and clothing line have washed out, but Micro is working on the renewal of the Caffeine recording label. He based his decision on the fact that “the digital age is much more competitive.” He needs to open his horizons with new enterprises that include not just delving into new turns of his own work, but assisting talent that is on the rise. He advises that “if you make music, the DJing will come.”
The desire to help other artists was brought on by the changes in the techno industry. Electronic music has arrived into the mainstream and is no longer underground. Fitness enthusiasts are working out to techno music and new talents are arriving on the scene every day. Whether you are new to the electronic music scene or a mainstay veteran, you will need to prepare for a night of nonstop dancing that is edgy and gyrating on the dance floor when DJ Micro comes to play music in your city.
