Kiki was a founder member, songwriter and drummer for the Miami Latin Boys in 1975 who then became Miami Sound Machine from 1977, to his departure in 1988. He performed on, and co-wrote the international hits including "Dr Beat", "Conga","Rhythm is Gonna Get You" and " 1-2-3".
"Dr Beat" has maintained popularity through inclusion on a number of 1980s retrospective albums. It also became popular again in 2005 when Scottish DJ and producer Mylo mashed the song up with his hit "Drop The Pressure" to create "Doctor Pressure" which became a hit single in its own right that year.
After leaving Miami Sound Machine Kiki continued to perform and produce with hits coming from productions for Azucar Moreno and Los Chicos Del Boulevard.
