Michael has been in the music business for almost 30 years and directs his three labels Efectiva, Superlovemusic and Avinaki Records, which are an average of his personal music history. As a member of the band, Scooter, currently based in Hamburg, Michael's focus is on touring and producing in addition to his solo work, which tends more to techno and analog electronic music structures. Michael was one of the first techno DJ’s in northern Germany in the early 90s and was one of the first artists on Kontor Records in the history of the label. A few years later, as the rave sound evolved into a slower club sound, he formed the project Soulforce with classic jazz musician Bob Cruise. Under this project name many tracks were composed for artists like Mary J. Blige, Lil Kim and Phil Collins. Through his passion for house music he met the talented singer and songwriter Terri B. She introduced Michael to Jerry Ropero. They decided to work together. Under the name 'Combo Cubano' they created many tracks and remixes for labels like Ministry of Sound, Subliminal Records, Vendetta, Azuli, Milk & Sugar, CR2, just to name a few. In 2006, Jerry and Michael produced a track titled "home alone," licensed by Erick Morillo's label Subliminal Records.

The track reached the top chart position on Traxsource, one of the major Dj platforms. Followed by their track called "Berimbau", which was signed on Roger Sanchez's label Stealth and was featured on Pete Tong's BBC Radio show.
