Many familiar names from all corners of the dance music industry have gone to their social media accounts to show their respect for the heartbreaking passing of Trance legend Robert Miles. He had suffered a short, but brave, battle with stage-four metastatic cancer lasting nine months. His track ‘Children‘ quickly became one of his most successful pieces of work after it mesmerized the world, gaining the number one status in over 12 countries back in 1995.
His debut album ‘Dreamland‘ hit the charts in multiple countries, allowing it to be awarded platinum in countries such as the UK, Germany and Switzerland as well as reaching gold in the United States.
Below are tweets posted by some of the most loved and respected DJs in the industry, including artists such as Armin Van Buuren and Ferry Corsten:
