Robert Miles or DJ Robert RIP

Daughter number 2 phoned me today really upset - as the DJ she worked with for a couple of seasons in Ibiza in the 90s has died a couple of days ago.

She only found out by chance that he was born in 69 in my native village of Switzerland- and that he was in the same school as her when she spent a term in the local school when she was 12. She had no idea until then he was actually Swiss- and as said, from my village.

Yes, I read about it yesterday. He was young too - RIP.

Everyone knows that piece of music. Reminds me of hot summers and dancing.

He was born in Switzerland, he was not Swiss.

Re: Robert Miles or DJ Robert RIP

A real shame. One of the guys that really popularised the electronic genres. He kept good company as well, working with Nitin Sawhney and Robert Fripp,

I just listened to Children again, and one of the things that struck me is that back when it was produced you'd have needed a studio full of synths, sequencers, samplers, and an effects rack that would fill and entire server cabinet - you really would have needed to know what you were doing from a technical viewpoint. These days it could be fully produced just on an iPad - I'm not kidding either.

Re: Robert Miles or DJ Robert RIP

Wow, pretty shocking news - always wondered what had happened to him, cancer.


The release of Miles' Dreamland album was a seminal moment for me as I loved the single Children (As did millions of others) which invariably led to my passion for Trance music

Re: Robert Miles or DJ Robert RIP

Dear Odile,

I'm writing to you in English, but you probably speak French if you live in Neuchâtel!

Well, since we're on an English forum, I'm going to go on in English.
I'm a journalist working for Le Temps and am currently writing an article about Robert Miles, following the sad news of his passing. I'm gathering information and testimonies about his work and the man he was, and as I saw your message, I thought perhaps you or your daughter would agree to have a short chat about Robert Miles, since you lived in the same village and knew his music?

You can reply to my email address virginie.nussbaum@letemps.ch.

Thank you very much in advance, with my best regards,

Virginie Nussbaum
