    Unhappy It's raining children, bitchez!

    Robert Miles

    1969 - 2017

    Robert Miles, the Swiss-born Italian disc jockey and producer whose best-known track was the 1995 international club hit "Children," died early Wednesday, May 10, 2017, after a short illness on the island of Ibiza, Spain. He was 47.

    The piano-infused instrumental rose to No. 1 in six countries: Switzerland, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, and Sweden. In the U.K., the track reached No. 2, but it did not make the top-20 in the U.S. and Canada, stopping short at No. 21. The tune appeared on Miles' 1996 platinum-selling "Dreamland" album.

    Also in 1996, Miles followed up with the single "Fable," which went to No. 1 in Italy and reached the top 10 in four other countries.

    In 1997, Miles released another single, "Freedom," which featured the vocals of Kathy Sledge from the U.S. vocal group Sister Sledge of "We Are Family" fame. "Freedom," from his second album, "23am," was a top-20 dance hit in Finland, Italy, and the U.K., but none of Miles' follow-ups fared as well as "Children," which has sold more than 5 million copies globally.

    Miles was born Roberto Concina Nov. 3, 1969, to his Italian immigrant parents in Fleurier, Switzerland. He showed an early aptitude on the piano. His family moved to Italy during the 1970s. Miles began his DJ career in the mid-'80s.

    In 1997, Miles won a Brit Award for the best international breakthrough act. He went on to release four more studio albums as well as some remix records. His last album, "Th1rt3en," was issued in 2011.

    ** He died of cancer after a 9 month battle. Cancer sucks!
