Erick Morillo’s cause of death has been revealed.

The DJ and music producer, who was best known for his 1993 hit I Like To Move It, died two months ago at the age of 49.

A spokesperson for the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner’s Office in Florida confirmed that his cause of death was acute ketamine toxicity. His manner of death was ruled an accident.

Morillo was found dead on September 1 at his Miami home after police responded to a call at 10.42am.

His passing came just under a month after he was arrested and charged with sexual battery on a woman at his home in December. Despite denying the accusations, the musician turned himself in after a rape kit tested positive with his DNA. His court hearing had been scheduled to happen just a few days after his death.

At the time of his death, his family told People: “He was well-loved by his family, and he had a lot of love to give.”

The DJ worked under several pseudonyms, such as Reel 2 Reel, which is the name under which I Like To Move It was released. Other names he used include Ministers de la Funk, The Dronez, RAW and Smooth Touch.
