My name is Vito Di Ventura, in past I also used the name of Vito Muntianese; recently I 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 (my city), and "step" that refers to the kind of music that I love, which is Dubstep.
I really love Dubstep since when it wasn't mainstream; I discovered this genre in London many years ago, anyway, I don't like just Dubstep and you can hear all my experiments, but it's been love at first sight so I even named my dog Dubstep. Probably today I would have called him Glitch Hop!
I was born July 26, 1986 in a small town in southern Italy. I spent my childhood 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 this 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 an never-published album of a dozen tracks called "Incredible mixes", just to entertain my old high school classmates who seemed to appreciate it. I artistically grew up in the middle of dismissed factories in northern Italy, where crazy Rave Parties have pumped 160bpm underground Tekno Music. But having a wide range of musical tastes, I learnt to feel confortabile in the quiet clubs of the city as well. Later, I cultivated the passion of dancing, and I sterted listening other genres like Hip Hop, Reggaeton, Speed Garage, Bassline, 2step and D'n'B.
For many years I used to get more pleasure listening and producing Techno and Minimal, that lead me to meet the Mediakademy staff so I joined the Electronic music school and I improved my skills both as a producer and as a dj.
December 2007: first release on Beatport with an EP of two tracks:
"Donkey Kong" and "Do not touch this apple."
Summer 2009: For a season, I obtained the task to be the responsible of music and shows in the historic hotel resort Pizzomunno in Vieste (southern Italy).
With practice, I learned the techniques of lightjaying for cabaret shows and other similiar entertainement events.
2010: for a whole year I was based in London where I got the best vibes from clubs, charts and vinyl shops mainly: Big experience.
2011: my last 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 remix contest of Vacca (Italian famous rapper), appearing on the homepage of Myspace for several days.
The song is called: "Vacca - Pelleossa" (Vito Muntianese not just Dubstep remix) ".
The official video is also available on Vimeo, check it out: http://vimeo.com/27350126
I'm next to learn the video editing techniques but at the meantime I'm looking for someone to collaborate in the creation of a music video.
Contact me if you're interested in any kind of collaboration.
At the moment that's all folks!
