I’d say WinslowDynasty is an eclectic mix of the sounds of Ashford & Simpson, 2pac, Miles Davis, Earth Wind & Fire, YES, Led Zepplin, Jimi Hendrix, Ben Folds, John Coltrane, Aretha Franklin, The Beatles, and The Fugees.

What is the WinslowDynasty Sound? WinslowDynasty created Life Music- a form of Alternative Music derived from soul, R&B, rock, jazz, blues, European classical and hip-hop music.

//LIFEMUSIC- is a category of music started by “The Life Album” by WinslowDynasty, that blends and synthesizes varying musical genre’s on the same album. The music can be spread across multiple radio formats and finds it’s cohesion in subject matter, sonic texture and philosophy.

What makes WinslowDynasty different is that most groups make an album of music in the same genre, we make an album of songs in multiple genre’s (across varying radio Formats). This is “Life Music” introduced by WinslowDynasty.

Dontae Winslow

SCR: Cheryl L. West

DIR: Robert Townsend

PROD: Messiah Jacobs

EXEC PROD: Rey Ramsey, David Saunier, Robert Townsend

ORIG. MUSIC: Dontae Winslow

CAST: Michael Clarke Duncan, Loretta Devine, and Vivica A. Fox.


In The Hive, a gritty film, based on the real experiences of the people who attend and teach at a special school in North Carolina called “The Hive.” It’s based on a true story about this woman in North Carolina named Vivian Saunders, who basically without any formal education, started an alternative school for at risk boys, who were expelled or discarded from regular schools. Not only were these boys gang bangers and drug dealers, they’re all teenagers, fathers at 14 and 15 years old as well.

In The Hive is a movie about the power of love and a gripping reminder that we can all make a difference in a childs life, even the ones whove been relegated to the discarded heap for far too long.
