About D.J. Ace

Brooklyn resident, Wayne Winston aka D.J. Ace has been involved in music for over 30 years. He is the CEO/Manager and Founder of N.S.P. Youth, a talent development/artist management program that works with children, teens, and young adults who work as models, actors, singers, dancers, and musicians.

Since NSP’s beginning in 1983, Mr. Winston began teaching photography, art, and journalism for after-school programs and organized the rap/breakdance group M.C. Express. Under his stage name, D.J. Ace, he became co-founder of A.R.A.S. Record label, where he has several recordings under the label. He has performed throughout the country, in the field of rap, hip hop, gospel, and jazz music, working with artists including Wu-Tang Clan, DJ Red Alert, Positive K, Doug Harris, Randy Weston, Jeff King, Roland Alexander, Bob Cunningham, James Spaulding, Young Keith, and the Power Posse. Most notably, he’s one of the original D.Js who organized club “Soul Powers” in 1989, hosting underground parties, featuring local hip hop artists at monthly events, among those including Notorious B.I.G., Vybe Tribe, Much Finesse, and a host of others.

His additional commitment to the youth includes spending time speaking, and working with youth on developing youth leadership skills, speaking at public youth events, planning youth programs for recreational purposes, and consultant to young artists.

From hip-hop artist to entrepreneur, D.J. Ace is currently in the process of completing two books, most recently, working on “Hip Hop History” (Volume 2 – The Brooklyn Bridge), where he shares his photographs, experiences, and thoughts with stories and history about his work in the hip-hop scene. As follow-up from “PUSH – Hip Hop History” (Volume 1), Ace discusses his rap/D.J. career from the late 80’s to the mid 90’s, his current hip hop involvement, and current state of today’s music industry. After returning to the hip hop scene in 2012, D.J. Ace celebrated the release of his full CD, "Back To The Hip Hop", a 13-track combination of previous and upcoming material. Featured songs, "Non-Stop Groove" and "You Can't Get Wit' This" were also pre-released on the introduction CD, "Make The First Move". Continuing touring, and preparing new music, we invite you to come enjoy the hip-hop experience, as he bridges the connections between hip-hop, yesterday, today, and tomorrow.


Today, Mr. Winston continues his work through N.S.P. Youth, managing young artists and performers, serving as a church Deacon, a middle school administrator, and advisor to several community based organizations abroad. He also continues his work as a photographer, and musician. Most recently, in 2016, D.J. Ace was the recipient of the C.I.B. International Humanitarian Award for his work in the hip hop community and abroad.
