Trance Veteran Robert Miles Dies at the Age of 47


The DJ and producer, real name Robert Concina, was known for his trance and downtempo music, including 1995’s “Children.”

The Swiss-born Italian DJ and producer, real name Robert Concina, was best known for his 1990s output of trance and downtempo music. In 1995 he released the chart-topping single “Children,” and in 2001 he set up his own record label, S:alt Records. In recent years his musical focus was on OpenLab, a radio station he launched in Ibiza in 2012 that was geared towards mellow and experimental sounds.

DJ Mag Italia first reported news of Concina’s death. Joe T Vannelli, a friend of the producer, said: “The tragic news of the passing of such a great talent and artist leaves me completely incredulous and shocked. With him, a big part of my life as a recording artist has also departed. I will miss our arguments, our fights, his judgements, but above all, I will miss his unbeatable talent for finding unique sounds and melodies.”
