Tommaso and Alessandro Pinto aka “DopeBoyzMuzic” are two brothers of Italian/Greek heritage living in Germany, producing quality Hip Hop and R&B music since 2007.
Tommaso (born in 1988) developed an interest in music early on. This interest quickly grew into hunger for creation of his own music. Being too young to acquire his own equipment to make anything he resulted to “borrowing” his fathers stereo and tape deck to record his first mix-tapes. He was also fortunate enough to be influenced by his fathers great taste in music which introduced legendary old school Funk groups, Hip Hop Classics and Reggae to him. After years of inheriting a love and passion for music Tommaso had earned himself his first turntables at 15 years old and started DJ’ing. Only to find himself 4 months later shaking the nerves to put on his first big show in front of a 1000+ people which then led to more bookings and shows.
At the age of 18 he was instantly captivated by one of Ryan Leslie’s famous beat making videos on YouTube and instantly knew he wanted to do the same thing. So he bought his first synthesizer, a Roland Juno-G, got an old version of FL studio from a friend and started experimenting. Tommaso kept DJ’ing at the clubs but noticed his own music was undoubtedly taking over as his productions were getting better & better.
His newly discovered passion did not go unnoticed by his brother Alessandro (born in 1993). Not only was he the younger brother, he was also much more introverted. Due to the fact that he was (and still is kinda of a) computer nerd, messing around with FL studio seemed to be the perfect pastime, since he could do it while sitting in front of his computer as usual. However, long hours spent in front of his computer seemed to be paying off quickly! It didn’t take too long for him to understand the basic functions of his DAW and his skills improved incredibly fast. Alessandro also took to the piano and became a big fan of classical music, playing his first small concerts at only 15 years old. Believe it or not, he’s also a big fan of classic Rock, a weird mix isn’t it?
“It’s kind of funny when you see my brother pull up to the studio with Led Zeppelin on full blast and 5 minutes later he’ll be making the meanest Hip Hop beats.” (Tommaso)
Alessandro is also a former music production student of the Musikhochschule Muenster. Without a doubt he’s the musical brain of DopeBoyzMuzic. Due to their different musical background and influences, their production is very versatile which has proven to be a big advantage. They’ve been able to successfully showcase their production skills on their YouTube channel and in various contests. In 2011 they won the “Mike Kalombo Producer Contest” on Youtube which put them on the radar of Hip Hop mogul Jermaine Durpi. In 2017 they’ve scored their first big placement on Kianushs album “Instinkt” which went top 10 in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. 2018 they provided the piano sample for Eminems record-breaking diss track “Killshot” (article by genius) .
After years of hard work DopeBoyzMuzic is now one of the most successful brands in the online market for instrumentals, with 10 years+ experience, over 20000 beats sold and having produced, mixed and mastered songs for independent artists in over 45 different countries all over the globe.
“When we first started, we just wanted to make music and do what we love to do. To us making a living off music always seemed like an impossible goal to reach. Now we’ve been producing music full time since 2015, and we don’t see ourselves stopping, only progressing forward. It’s truly a dream come true”. Tommaso & Alessandro – DopeBoyzMuzic
