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 Micro spun at many of Caffeine's parties, specializing in acid breaks. In 1994 he joined with Vicious Vic under the name Progression. They released a debut single Reach Further, and were later commissioned[by whom?] to remix the artists Paradise 3001, Joe T. Vanelli, Masters at Work, and The X-Files theme.
He recorded two mix albums for Roadrunner in the late 1990s, Coast to Coast (1997) and Caffeine: The Natural Stimulant (1998). Micro's first release for Moonshine Music, Micro-Tech Mix (1998), was followed by a succession of mix albums, usually one released annually.
DJ Micro toured the U.S. recording mix albums for Moonshine Music, slightly changing his style with each album, and moved toward trance while maintaining his breakbeat emphasis.
