There is sad news in the world of electronic music Tuesday night (May 9) as Robert Miles has reportedly died. The famed Italian trance music producer and DJ, born Roberto Concina, was 47.
Miles is perhaps best known for his 1995 breakout hit “Children,” which sold more than five million copies and is credited with helping push trance music closer to the mainstream. The song spent 13 weeks atop the Euro Top 100 chart after its release.
No official cause of death has been revealed, but reports indicate it is the result of a disease Miles has been battling.
