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.

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.
