Xavian & Paul Bartolome - Castles Tonight
Arkham Digital and Xavian kick off 2021 with an amazing homage to the killer vocals of time past with "Castles Tonight". Recruiting the talents of Rock vocalist Paul Bartolome, who's recent successes such as "Criminal" & "Devil Is In The Details" with hundreds of thousands of streams and views, has definitely made a mark in the Rock & Metal scene.

"Castles Tonight" is clearly inspired by the vocals found on early Above & Beyond and Gareth Emery tracks. Combining timeless production with pop sensibilities & strong lyrics to deliver a track that will only get better with time.

As a veteran of labels such as In My Opinion (Armada), ZYX Dance, & even the recent A State of Trance Future Favorites Best of 2020 compilation, Xavian has been building a strong foundation in the trance scene. The track was able to crack the 50k streams mark in its first week thanks to some huge supports from playlist curators, and still holds strong in the Beatport Trance Top 50 and Beatport Trance Hype Top 10.

Their second collaboration is already scheduled for 26 Feb on Future Sequence, the label behind the hugely popular "Future Trance" series of CD compilations. Under a different alias, Professor Xavier, Xavian has also released another collaboration with Paul, this time focusing on blending Psytrance & Hardstyle together, known as Psystyle, with electric guitars and a rock vocal topline from Paul. That collaboration, "Take Me Away (House of M)" is currently sitting in the Beatport Hard Dance Top 10 and over 40k streams after less than 10 days after release, along with the music video being posted on some heavy hitting YouTube channels.
