Robert Miles Fable

Drift off into a dreamland like none other with Robert Miles’ hit tune “Fable” that was released all the way back in 1996!


This week, we’re turning back the clock to 1996 and taking a look at “Fable“, a track from the late, Robert Miles. A titan in the dance music industry who was the inspiration for many that followed, he tragically passed away in 2017 at the age of 47 in Ibiza. Robert Miles was a pioneer of the scene and a true musician. A composer who was classically trained in piano, he eventually found his love for early synths. This would lead him to go on to start his own recording studio and pirate radio station.

Miles was most well-known for his trance track “Children”, but “Fable” off of his album Dreamland, was also one of his biggest releases. The song received universal acclaim by fellow artists and dance music lovers alike, allowing it to hit the top of the charts in a number of countries like France, Germany, and the UK.

“Fable” is a melodic masterpiece full of emotion and dream-like synths and was released in both instrumental (dream version) and lyrical (message version) format featuring the uncredited vocals of Fiorella Quinn. Clocking in at a six and a half minutes, this track is a dance music masterpiece created by an individual who deserves nothing but respect for his contribution to the scene. Check it out below and let us know what your favorite track from this legend is in the comments!

Robert Miles – Fable Lyrics:

Tell me a fable
A fable
Tell me a fable
Tell me a fable
Tell me a fable
A fable
Tell me a fable
Talk to me, tenderly
Show reality fantasy
We’ll bound together
All win in one feat
Talk to me, tenderly
Show reality fantasy
We’ll bound together
All win in one feat
Ooh ah
Ooh ah
The fable
The fable
Ah
The fable
The fable
Tell me a fable
Tell me a fable
A fable
A fable
A fable that will never end
And now, I dream
Dream
Dream
Ooh ah
Ooh ah
Do do ah
Do do ah
Ooh ah

RIP to you Robert Miles…


Christopher, or Brown Bear as his Festival Family and most of his friends call him, got his humble beginnings in the dance music scene when he was a child from none other than his mother. The weekends were filled with dance music from the 80’s and 90’s like La Bouche’s “Be My Lover” and Corona’s “Rhythm of the Night”. In 2010 his friends showed him a video from Bonnaroo of Pretty Light’s “I Know the Truth” and he immediately dived on in. Since then he has attended every live music festival from Spirit of Suwannee’s, Purple Hatters Ball (Jam Bands), to Let It Roll Drum & Bass Festival in the Czech Republic. Chris has an eclectic palate for music; from Shpongle and Bassnectar to Oliver Heldens and Porter Robinson, he vibes with it all. He has traveled from coast to coast and around the world looking what he calls The Bear Necessities of Life; the simple things that make you smile, or you find visually moving. This pursuit and travels inspired Bearlosophy, his photographic journal of all his adventures. He aspires to travel the world taking photos for non-profit organizations or to work for one of the top EDM photography teams like aLIVE Coverage.
