About Robert Miles:

The story of Robert Miles, born Roberto Concina, is that of three journeys, geographical, spiritual and above all musical. Though he’s circled the globe many times and picked up more than a few glittering prizes along the way, it’s music and Robert’s sheer love of it that has propelled him from a small town in the Swiss mountains to success in the World’s music capitals and beyond. Moreover, this same love of music burns as fiercely in him still as he prepares to undertake the next phase of his remarkable voyage. 

Music is an integral part of Drew’s life, whether it’s listening to trance or house while working or at a festival. He’s always out to discover new and exciting sounds. When video games RollerCoaster Tycoon and Unreal Tournament were the hot new games, one of his friends that he knew through the community forums introduced him to trance on Digitally Imported and he soon fell in love with trance, happy hardcore, hardstyle and other fast BPM (beats per minute) genres.
