The news was reported by DJ Mag Italia, who claim he died of an “unspecified illness”.
Producer and longtime friend Joe T Vannelli confirmed:
Yes man, it is a tragedy.
He later posted to Facebook:
The tragic news of the death of a very talented artist of our time, makes me incredulous and upset. I will miss the fights, brawls, criticism, judgements but especially your talent in finding sounds and melodies unparalleled.
Miles – real name Roberto Concina – released his debut album Dreamland in June 1996 and went platinum in Europe.
It featured the smash hit track Children, which cost just £150 to produce and went No 1 in over 12 countries.
Since the success of Dreamland, he took a step back from the limelight but would still release music, and even launched his own radio station ‘Open Lab’ in Ibiza.
The Electronic Music world, especially Trance, has lost a legend. Never forget:
