Micro spun his music at never-ending Caffeine bashes, dedicating to breakbeat, a type of electrical music his fans danced to all night.

Caffeine Records

DJ Micro started his techno career in 1991 when the industry was just hitting the hot spots around the world. He participated as the main player in forming Caffeine Records group that began as a weekly club night. It turned into a business as it became more popular, with a brand name, clothing line, and even a club. Micro spun his music at never-ending Caffeine bashes, dedicating to breakbeat, a type of electrical music his fans danced to all night.

Hooked Up With Vicious Vic

Vicious Vic was introduced to Micro in 1994, and they released their first single called "Reach Further" with Vicious using the pseudonym Progression. The single became a giant hit and one of the popular sounds on worldwide dance floors. With that, they were offered a commission to remix super popular artists including Joe T. Vanelli, Masters at Work, Paradise, and the X-Files theme.

Became a Well-Known DJ

Toward the end of the 1990s, Micro was one of the most popular DJs in the world. He had recorded a couple of mix albums, called Coast to Coast and Caffeine: The Natural Stimulant for Roadrunner. He soon recorded Micro-Tech Mix, released by Moonshine Music. He was on a roll with several more mix albums with a staggering mix album a year.

Micro gradually morphed his flair as he created all his albums, progressing to trance, electronic dance music of multi-looks parallel to techno. He continued to maintain his signature breakbeat link. As the new century arrived, he was well-known throughout the East Coast as one of the top DJs.

Techno Producer

Micro is truly established as a veteran techno producer, who twirls as a spin master. His portfolio is what made the DJ scene we see today. With Caffeine Club and its clothing line a wash, he is contemplating the resurrection of the company’s recording label.

He says, “the digital age is much more competitive” and needs to open his spheres with new branding besides looking for spins with his original work but discovering new talent and helping them succeed in the techno genre.

Help Other Artists

The aspiration to lead other techno artists has produced changes in the techno industry. Electronic music is on the dance floors and in the mainstream, which is where it should be and not underground. Even fitness devotees work out and train with some of the most uplifting techno music ever. Each new talent that arrives at the scene means techno will live another century.

The electronic music scene is no longer new it is mainstream. It is DJs like Micro who put it there to say for an all-night dance party with twirls and edgy dance floor moves in each city he plays music.

Full Rip CD Mix from Caffeine

If you get a chance, take a listen to "Caffeine." The recording is Micro and his two partners. This is one of the best techno recordings I have ever heard. It's upbeat, clean, and gets my dancing shoes moving to the breakbeat.

"See the Light" is not as clean as "Caffeine, The Micro Blend," but it has a way of getting under my skin.

See The Light (Onkels Remix)

Electronic music has arrived into the mainstream and is no longer underground. Fitness enthusiasts are working out to techno music as well.

Micro Still Performing

Micro is still performing strongly at notable venues like Jacksonville's Myth Nightclub and Married to the Rave in Orlando. I am sure he will keep performing because he knows what it takes to electrify the dancers.

Micro is changing his style as the years' progress and each album is released. He has 10 albums so far. I hope he produces more. With each album, he moves forward and emphasis the breakbeat fresh while aiming toward trance.
