The Next addition to the Urban Latin Music Movement is a group by the name of Miguell y Jon Q also known as MJQ. The duo, are 1st cousins and their musical background goes all the way back to when they were adolescents. During their childhood, they performed with both their fathers whom had a local group at the time. Both fathers decided to add the two young-ins to attract and make their show a little more interesting. For years it worked out great but as the duo grew older, they believed they had gained enough experience to start their own project.


                      While in school they experimented by forming a number of groups (Los Juveniles, La Banda Jig-E, and 4JL). They Played at local talent shows, Christmas and summer shows, local stores, restaurants, etc... and in doing so they befriended childhood neighbors Max and Lenny (Aventura Members) whom at the time were also on the same quest but on a different genre of music. Years past and Miguell Y Jon Q recorded over 50 songs in all genres of music, but never released any of it commercially because they never had the opportunity to due it properly. Childhood Friends Max and Lenny hit the big time after all the hard work put into their Project and became World Known Latin Sensation Group, Aventura. Jon Q went off to tour with them As a Percussionist and experiment with his newly found talent, Clothing Design. Miguell's Nephew, Toby, was a background singer of Aventura at the time and suggested it would be a great opportunity For the duo to experiment with other things. Miguell began to produce Music for the duo while the other gained some knowledge of what it was like to be out on the road as an artist and networked. A couple of more years past and finally the Duo (Miguell Y Jon Q) alongside Toby got a big break. A manager becomes interested in Toby working on his own project and Toby brings it upon the duo. They decide to form a 5 man Harmonic Urban Group called Solo 5 and propose a Production Project to any producer who would take the time out to focus on this project. They first approach Max and Lenny about the production of a possible album, but the brothers were working on God's Project at the time and had little time for other projects. The manager approaches Solo 5 about a producer who’s interested in the project.

                      So it begins, Solo 5 consisted of Miguell, Jon Q, Juanay, Jaschell and Toby Love, begin to write and co-produce an urban Merengue/Bachata Album for Sony/BMG. The group worked hard on the Album day in and day out. Finally the Album was done and presented to Sony/BMG but many issues and indifferences occurred during negotiations that led to disappointing results. The Album was put out under Toby Love but the group remained as work for hire. Miguell Y Jon Q along with the other members, were thrilled for the opportunity and position they were in, but each envisioned the situation differently.   After 5 years of doing Background vocals for Bachata Extraordinaire Toby Love, the duo decided to pursue their goal and put out their own Album.   With times changing and the digital world taking over, Miguell y JonQ believe that the internet has made it easier for upcoming artists to promote and market their music in the industry. Doing Big Venues with Toby Love during these 5 years, held by radio stations like la Mega 97.9, La Kalle 105.9, and TV’s Telemundo, ESL, Sabado Gigante, Mun2, etc., gave them the experience of performing for large crowds and recognition throughout the world. Miguell & Jon Q have been to Honduras, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Santo Domingo, Columbia, Italy, Rome, Paris, Amsterdam, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, and all along the US and now seek to do it all over on their own.

                      Miguell Y JoN Q have just dropped their debut, Latin Urban Bachata Single titled "Desde Que Te Vi", Prod by Erwin Duran which is now available for purchase or streaming on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Amazon Play and all social Media store outlets.  For the Past 1 year the duo have been creating what will be the most versatile album ever created by a Latin artist or group.  They have formed their own Company, Dafamz Music LLC., based out of New York with not 1 but 2 Production/Recording studios. The duo have been recording in Dafamz Studios day in day out and are what is believed to be about 85% done. Collaborating with up and coming Producers E. Duran, Tico Mix of NewYork, Descarga Musical, Pedro Valdez, Urban Producer Jtraxx, Eddiel and Max Agende, this album is sure to have a fusion of all genres of music. They have also dropped some mix tape joints collaborating with their up and coming prodigy EQ, which they have performed in festivals, fundraisers, Clubs, and even Baseball's most famous arena Yankee Stadium.   The duo are now working hand and hand with Eclatnetwork 's Rafael Rodriguez , and 2 other Management companies whom they have joined forces with to create the best strategy to bring you the  fans an unforgettable  project.  The quest for the completion of the album continues but until than u can download all their Mixtape tracks for free on their Soundcloud Page.  Check Out these projects along with Miguell Y JonQ's long anticipated album set to drop in 2018.
