By the 1990s, Patricio Rey became one of the most famous bands in Argentina. It became the band's mainstream success with La Mosca y la Sopa, Lobo Suelto - Cordero Atado and Luzbelito. Also, the band began to travel to Tandil and Junín stadiums to play their shows, increasing the audience.

In 1997, Skay, Poly and Indio were the only band members who had been in all their formations, and therefore decided to take more control over the band's future decisions, until Indio decided split Patricio Rey in 2001, for a while due to creative differences with the musicians.

Skay started playing as solo artist in 2002, and published his first solo album A través del Mar de los Sargazos. In 2004, published Talismán. After that, published his third album La marca de Caín, with the name of "Skay y los Seguidores de la Diosa Kali". In 2010, they published their fourth album ¿Dónde Vas?.

In August 2013, Skay together with his now-called band "Los Fakires" released La Luna Hueca, with Oscar Reyna as rhythm guitar, Claudio Quartero on bass, Javier Lecumberry on keyboards and "Topo" Espíndola as drummer.
