Anthony and Xander, known as XiJaro & Pitch, have been delighting trance fans for almost a decade with their pure uplifting sound. Anthony and Xander have mastered the art of melody writing that resonates deeply with their audience, making them one of the most prolific uplifting producers today. Despite challenges like Anthony’s blindness and hearing difficulties, their energetic performances always leave a lasting impression, whether they are performing at major festivals, clubs, or their “Chasing Dreams” live sets on Twitch, which skyrocketed their career.

The Chasing Dreams podcast has transformed into a fantastic compilation in partnership with Black Hole Recordings, released last year. They hoped but certainly didn’t expect its massive success. It may be because of the genuine, positive feeling behind their music, inspiring listeners to keep moving forward. In the two-disc duration, you’ll find hot tracks from scene leaders like Giuseppe Ottaviani, Markus Schulz, Solarstone, Ferry Corsten, Driftmoon, and Ciaran McAuley, among others. One of the standout tracks on this compilation is their most popular one, “Invisible,” featuring Adara, which earned a spot on last year’s A State of Trance Top 50. And just recently, Somna delivered a brilliant remix you should also check out.

This definitely sparked another collaborative project with Adara, titled “Goodbye.” XiJaro & Pitch initially created the upbeat instrumental version, but they realized it was missing vocals. After Adara gave the thumbs up, unlike before, this time all three of them, together with Brieanna Grace co-wrote the lyrics, drawing inspiration from Anthony’s recent personal experiences.

Adara: “Goodbye” is one of the most collaborative songwriting experiences in my career, as for the first time ever I collaborated on the songwriting together with the producers of the song. This single truly is our collective story. It started as a phone call with XiJaro & Pitch where we talked about what they were going through in their life and what they were feeling emotionally. Often times when you write on your own, it is hard to understand the emotions the producer(s) have behind the instrumentals they create. This is what makes this song so special. I am sure we can all relate to the feelings of powerlessness when you’re going through a breakup and it’s not your decision. I hope you love it as much as we do!”

Anthony shared, “For the first time in my life I was actually involved in lyrics writing, and it was an amazing experience. Moreover, it is a new sensation for me to not only be able to express my emotions through melodies, but also through words. The song illustrates the fragility of love and the power of a single word to shatter someone completely. It came from a very deep place for me and it was an honor to have Adara & Brieanna’s songwriting and singing talent to make it what it is.”

XiJaro & Pitch pointed out they avoided replicating “Invisible” by using different sounds, arrangements, and even Adara’s singing style. Could “Goodbye” get even more plays worldwide? With upcoming shows at renown festivals such as Tomorrowland, Creamfields and Luminosity Beach Festival, XiJaro & Pitch’s rise to stardom continues throughout 2024.
