DJ Robert Miles, famous for his 1990s hit single 'Children', is dead. He was 47.
Miles, whose real name is Robert Concina, died of an undisclosed illness, reports dailymail.co.uk.
'The tragic news of the death of a very talented artist of our time makes me incredulous and upset,' said Miles's longtime friend Joe T Vannelli.
'I will miss the fights, brawls, criticism, judgements but especially your talent in finding sounds and melodies unparalleled,' Vannelli added.
Miles topped the charts in at least 12 countries with his dance track 'Children', released in 1995.
After releasing 'Children' and a few other successful hits, Miles focused more on producing and launched the Open Lab Balearic radio station.
