DJ Micro began on the East Coast, where in 1991 he helped form the Caffeine Records collective in Deer Park, NY. Caffeine began as a weekly club night, and started building a brand. Micro spun at many of Caffeine's parties, specializing in acid breaks. In 1994 he joined with Vicious Vic under the moniker Progression. They obtained massive popularity in the international dance scene after the release of their debut single Reach Further. They were soon commissioned to remix artists such as Paradise 3001, Joe T. Vanelli, Masters at Work, and even the X Files theme.
He recorded two mix albums for Roadrunner in the late '90s, Coast to Coast (1997) and Caffeine: The Natural Stimulant (1998). He later hooked up with Moonshine in 1998. Micro's first release for Moonshine, Micro-Tech Mix (1998), would be followed by a large succession of mix albums, usually one released annually.
DJ Micro aggressively toured the country recording mix albums for Moonshine Music to boost his popularity. Micro slightly changed his style with each album and moved toward trance while maintaining his breakbeat roots. By the end of the '90s, he had become one of the most popular DJs on the East Coast, considered in the same class of superstar DJs as Frankie Bones and Scott Henry. Like them, Micro toured often, particularly on the East Coast.
