Robert Miles, the DJ and trance producer best known for his worldwide 1995 hit track “Children,” has died in Ibiza, Spain. He was 47.

The news was confirmed early Wednesday by fellow producer Joe T. Vannelli via Facebook. The cause of death has not been disclosed.

“The tragic news of the death of a very talented artist of our time, makes me incredulous and upset,” Vannelli wrote. “I will miss the fights, brawls, criticism, judgements but especially your talent in finding sounds and melodies unparalleled.”

The Swiss-born Italian musician topped the music charts in 12 countries with the hypnotic “Children,” which was first released in 1995, according to the BBC. He dropped his first full album, “Dreamland,” the following year.
