Iconic trance DJ Robert Miles has reportedly died at the age of 47. 

According to Vanyaland (via DJ Mag Italia), no official cause of death has been revealed.

The Italian producer is perhaps best known for his 1995 hit track, Children, which sold more than five million copies worldwide and spent 13 weeks at #1 on the Euro Top 100 chart following its release. 

Longtime collaborator and fellow DJ, Joe T Vannelli, said in a statement, "The tragic news of the death of a very talented artist of our time, makes me incredulous and upset.

"With him also it is a part of my life as an artist manufacturer. I will miss the fights, brawls, criticism, judgments but especially your talent in finding sounds and melodies unparalleled."

A number of friends and musicians have since paid their respects to Miles following today's news, including Pete Tong, Chris Lake, Max Graham and Morgan Page.
