Trance Legend Robert Miles Passes Away At 47

The music industry has lost yet another legendary figure. The iconic Trance DJ and producer, Robert Miles passed away in Ibiza last evening local time due to a mystery illness.

An undisputed maestro in his craft, Robert Miles was one of the pioneers of Trance music as we know it. He is vastly known for his 1995 hit ‘Children‘ which has sold more than 5 million copies and has achieved Platinum and Gold statuses in multiple countries. The song also won Miles a BRIT award, making him the only Italian ever with that achievement. His album ‘Dreamland‘ helped define the domain of ‘Progressive’ sounds.

Robert Miles’ long-time friend and producer Joe T Vannelli said in the statement to DJ Mag Italia:

The tragic news of the death of a very talented artist of our time, makes me incredulous and upset. With him also it is a part of my life as an artist manufacturer. I will miss the fights, brawls, criticism, judgments but especially your talent in finding sounds and melodies unparalleled.”

As the fans and industry mourn the death of an icon, our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family.
