Robert Miles, the Swiss-born Italian musician born Robert Concina, has died aged 47.
The trance legend, best known for producing iconic '90s track 'Children', was battling cancer at the time of his death.
Miles' 'Children' became one of the best-selling dance tracks of all time after its release in 1995, reaching number one in more than 12 countries.
The trance legend then went on to produce more experimental and leftfield music, as well as Balearic radio station OpenLab, which supported unnoticed electronic music and visual art.
The dance music community has come together to pay tribute to the legendary producer. See some of the reactions — including tweets from Adam Beyer, Ferry Corsten and Armin Van Buuren — below.
