American Music & Sound in Woodland Hills, Calif., has teamed with Bryan Pistone and Darren de Souza, two veterans of the DJ market, to promote and demo the Allen & Heath Xone line of DJ mixers and the complete line of Reloop DJ products.
For Pistone the focus will be building, managing and educating the company’s dealers and representatives about both brands’ feature sets and benefits.
“Xone not only has the prestige of the Allen & Heath brand behind it, but the high level of quality inherent in all of the A & H products,” Pistone says. “Xone’s workmanship, state-of-the-art technology, extensive features, and luxurious design goes much further that what is available for the discriminating customer looking for a robust mixer.”

de Souza concurs: “The Xone 92 mixer is very popular in both the mobile and club DJ scene; it simply gets the job done. Plus, the controlling you can do with the effects bank in the Xone mixers is very extensive.”
Adding to the duo’s enthusiasm is the addition of the Reloop line of DJ products. “I started seeing Reloop products about 10 years ago in Latin America, then in the U.S.,” says Pistone. “I thought, wow! These products have huge potential!”
de Souza has been a DJ since age 13 and has done residencies at some of Canada’s hottest nightclubs. Referring to the Reloop RP 8000 turntable, he says, “I haven’t seen a turntable this good since the Technics 1200. It’s great to stand by a line that offers products that work so impressively, and Reloop has a price point and feature-benefit set for all DJ’s at every level.”
Pistone says, “I’m really looking forward to giving my industry relationships some very high quality products at a fair price. Reloop is that perfect blend of quality, features, form and value. XONE is simply the perfect interface between the hands of the talented artist and the music he seeks to produce.”
Finally, de Souza says that he sees an advantage in pairing Allen & Heath’s Xone mixers with its Reloop DJ product line up: “Every DJ is different—they have their own styles—it’s great to have two product lines that compliment and customize to the individual needs of DJs at all levels of experience.”
