Adios, Kiko De Gallo.

It is with a combination of pride and regret that we announce the imminent departure from our midst of local DJ and scene-uplifter

Kiko De Gallo. After moving to town three years ago and dropping beats on every dance floor in town that mattered, Kiko (real name: Francisco Asis Morillo Otero, b. Cadiz, Spain) is bound for the sunny beaches of Miami. Kiko is one of the nicest and most positive DJs in town, and we're sorry to see him go. Speaking of nice, let's hope you, sir, were kind to Kiko because his new job is Director of Digital Operations for

Fania Records, which is pretty much the most prestigious Latin music label in the world. Olé!

Looks like Kiko has his work cut out for him, as the label's Web site is currently being rebuilt. Fania goes back to 1964 and has launched some of the biggest names in Latin music, such as Héctor Lavoe, Tito Puente and the almighty Fania All-Stars. Unfortunately, this move means Kiko won't be able to spin at our Pitch Music Showcase next week, but we forgive him.

Congratulations, Kiko. Do stay in touch. Play him off, All-Stars!
