Vicious Vic connected with Micro in 1994, and they released their first single called "Reach Further" with Vicious using the pseudonym Progression.
The single became an enormous hit and one of the trendy sounds on dance floors all over the world. With that, they gained a commission to remix famous artists, including Joe T. Vanelli, Masters at Work, Paradise, and the X-Files theme.

Micro gained recognition 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.

Make yourself listen to "Caffeine." The recording features Micro and his two partners. The sound is one of the best techno recordings I have ever heard. It's upbeat, clean, and gets my dancing shoes moving to the breakbeat.

Where is Micro 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 it up 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 ten albums so far. I am keeping my ear to the ground, listen for his next album. With each new release, he moves forward and pushes the breakbeat and aims toward the trance.
