You're listing a totally different Genre. Modern Dance music does produce some legendary tunes be it in D&B, Progressive Psy etc . The Artists you list here are modern pop and that has always been shit.

  Children is an absolute belter of a tune, the intro on the above mix played on a large pa system in a big room will send shivers down your spine. 

 

 RIP Robert Miles.

young too .. i listen to the gash that  is classed as legendary today ..Jay Z , Kendrick Lamar , Drake ...my god ..without sounding like my dad it is no where near as good as the late 80s and 90s music ,

  

 The stuff my nearly 13 year old daughter plays is absolute shit, and that's putting it mildly.

I've got a 13 year old daughter and I agree, all the stuff she listens to is total crap. There's no rhythm and the 'singers' sound like they've got some sort of speech impediment. I think they completely covered the genre in the early 90's and since then they've been flogging a dead horse. My kids don't admit to it but are quite impressed I was 'active' at the start of the rave scene

P.S, RIP, way too young at 47. I've not heard what caused his death, they just said he had a short illness.

Hi

 

RIP- http://www.mirror.co.uk/3am/celebrity-news/how-did-robert-miles-die-10394486 Agreed thats way too young. It's an unfortunate reminder for me as towards the end of 2016, a good friend of mine passed away from Cancer. Shocking aspect was he went into hospital  (he lived in the USA through work) with a hurting stomach and was told, he had stage 4 cancer.. they kept him in and family were enroute to visit and he slipped away just 4 days later :(

 

NWJW - Absolutely agree with you ! the original track and the remixes were produced and recorded very well indeed and with excellent quality home hi-fi, 'Children' sounded sublime. For some time, the 'main' hifi setup I had at home was in a larger than average room and allowed me to run twin 18 inch 8 ohm subwoofers in specific enclosures and on top of which I also had a 3 way speaker system that used a long excursion 15 inch subwoofer! The amplifier was a Denon PMA1050 (I think that was the model number) and I think it was rated at 105W per channel at 8ohms. I'd always listen to bass heavy tracks with the bass turned down a few notches to reduce any distortion/clipping. The speakers and sub I have with my laptop setup here now is just a small 8 inch with 2 little satellites but sounds decent enough, so going to have to play some of his tracks..

 

'pop music' has become very commercialised and 'manufactured' over the last couple decades and it's now the exception rather than the rule where an artist has 'true' talent such as singing/voice, song writing and composition etc. The 'greats' are getting old now or have passed away already and the 'new' crop generally have just one or two aspects of talent in comparison. I think artists like Adele, Alicia Keys, London Grammar and Lana Del Ray (amongst plenty others) have amazing talent and also have echoes of other genre's of music that have 'fused' themselves into 'pop music'. 

 

There's some amazing artists and voices with modern day trance and progressive and I suspect, 'Children' will be used to make new tracks in the near future..

 

Cheers, Dennis!

Just listened to the track and indeed shivers down my spine. It was a tune from my time of life where I was learning to drive/first serious girlfriend/going to uni....
