Need a gift for a gifted musician?
They want me to claim my legal fiction name that is "Vito Di Ventura" but I feel like this is a fraud to me. In past I also used the name of "Vito Muntianese" in music, but I recently decided to become "molestep".
I have a great passion for puns, in fact molestep combines the adjective "molest" of a molesting sound, the word "Mole" that is also the symbol of Torino (the city where I actually live), and "step" that is just about the kind of music that I used to love a lot in the past years, which is Dubstep.
I really loved Dubstep since when it wasn't mainstream; I discovered the genre in London many years ago, anyway, I don't just listen to Dubstep but it was love at first sight so I even named my dog Dubstep in 2011. Check out his pictures on Instagram, tag: #dubstepthedog.
I was born July 26, 1986 in a small town of the southern Italy. I spent my childhood essentially in 2 cities: Taranto and Rome, in 1998 I moved to Torino, the city where I'm based right now wich is the city that gave me the great passion for music.
When I was 16, I started producing my first tracks with an old game for PlayStation. I was inspired by House music, Hardcore and Hardstyle sounds, I produced a never-published album of a dozen tracks called "Incredible mixes", just to entertain my old high school classmates who seemed to appreciate. I grew up in the middle of dismissed factories in northern Italy, where rave parties have pumped the best 160 BPM Underground Tekno music of my old good times. But having a wide range of musical tastes, I learnt to feel confortabile in clubs as well. Later, I cultivated the passion of dancing, and I started listening more to other genres like Hip Hop, Reggaeton, Speed Garage, Bassline, 2step and D'n'B.
For a long time I was fixed on producing Techno and Minimal, this brought me to meet the Mediakademy staff so I joined this Electronic music school and I improved my skills both on production and djing.
December 2007: first release on Beatport with an EP of two tracks: "Donkey Kong" and "Touch this apple."
Summer 2009: For the summer season, I have been in charge as the responsible of music and shows in the historic hotel resort Pizzomunno in Vieste (southern Italy).
While there I learned the techniques of lightjaying too. Good deal.
2010: for 1 year I was based in London where I got the best vibes from clubs, charts and vinyl shops. Big life experience. Not just for music.
2011: my last music release, not just on Beatport but on all the most important electronic music portals such: Junorecords, Amazon, Trackitdown, Djdownloads, iTunes with 2 singles: "I love my life" and "Nicestep".
Shortly later I won a Vacca's remix contest (an Italian great rapper). Price of the contest: I was on the homepage of Myspace for several days.
The song is called: "Vacca - Pelleossa" (Vito Muntianese not just Dubstep remix) ". Universal Music.
The official video remix is available on my Vimeo channel, check it out: http://vimeo.com/27350126
