XiJaro and Pitch are Chasing Dreams of Hearing Loss Cure with Charity Festival

by Nadine Pasterczyk

Dreams are meant to be chased. A sentiment deeply understood by Anthony Reyers (Pitch), who despite suffering the blindness from birth and progressive hearing loss of Norrie Disease, has always followed his passion of becoming an accomplished DJ and producer. Through his music, he now chases dreams for others, by raising research funds for a hearing loss cure. The XiJaro & Pitch Chasing Dreams Festival, a three day charity event with some of the biggest names in trance music, will premiere on February 4th.

“It is the world of sounds that I had to stop taking for granted when I was 18. I learned that the rare genetic condition I was born with would not only cause blindness; it would also let my hearing slowly fade away, replacing it with loud constant screeching and ringing that would never stop. My condition was so rare that no research on it would be done.”

— Anthony

Anthony, along with his musical duo partner Xander van Dommelen (XiJaro), take this not as a verdict, but as a call to action. Their new artist brand, Chasing Dreams, includes a weekly live stream on Twitch as well as a podcast (available on Apple Podcasts and YouTube) to continuously inspire and give back to the community.

In the past year alone, XiJaro & Pitch have fundraised over £50,000 for the Norrie Disease Foundation, the only charity in the world which promotes pioneering research into finding a hearing loss cure, and one which is otherwise severely underfunded. Thanks to these efforts, the first studies have now been published and research teams have begun collaboration towards human trials, a major step in the mission to transform the future for those affected by this disease.

XiJaro & Pitch are launching the Chasing Dreams Festival, a virtual Twitch event spanning from Friday, February 4th at 12:00pm CET to Monday, February 7th at 2:00am. Chasing Dreams Festival will take you on a journey through trance with sets from Darude, Emma Hewitt, Lange, Ferry Tayle, Stoneface & Terminal, Elevven, Allen Watts, Talla 2XLC, and many other talents who will unite to support the Norrie Disease Foundation.
