M.A.N. II is a 29 year old singer songwriter. Born Michael Angel Negron Jr. (call him Miguel for short), his abbreviated name (stage name) suggests he is a new prototype of the male gender. His music covers various genres while all fitting into a malleable pop formula. Starting out with straight up Pop, EDM and Hip-Hop with songs like “Tranny Boy” and “Free & Brave” on his first couple releases, Miguel ventured further into Rap, R&B, Screamo, Heavy Metal (“Man Pussy”, “Bliss”, “Bitch I’m the M.A.N.”) more recently while also creating a Witch-House collaborative album with long time Producer Shan Griffis. The two created a name for the duo titled DESTROYAS with imagery inspired by a ghostly Madonna.
He went to Berklee College of Music for a year to study Voice and Songwriting but dropped out due to an unimpressive curriculum and will to create original work full time. He has been releasing music officially since 2012. The most prominent musicians he has collaborated with are YouTube sensation rapper CupcakKe on “Man Pussy” and Producer Chris Young from Real Housewives of NYC on “Free & Brave”. To date he has released over 100 tracks with multiple collaborators. He angles himself as a Madonna-like reincarnation of Prince or David Bowie with vocals that could compete with Beyoncé and Celine Dion.
Miguel sustains full control over every aspect of his art. From every single lyric being written by him, a majority of his tracks being produced solo (including production, mixing and mastering), creating album artwork, shooting and editing videos alone and much more. He does enjoy collaborating because his main talents are singing and lyric writing but maintaining the ability to release music solo is a big talent most artists don’t have.
He began with a short EP released during the summer of bis 21st birthday. “Tranny Boy” garnered mixed reviews, especially within the LGBTQ+ community for controversial lyrics but remains a memorable moment in time that his fans still remember to this day. He went on to produce a full album, but not with the standard amount of tracks because he found himself writing hundreds of songs a year. He released “MK Ultra” which was a critique on life in modern America. His most controversial album to date touching on subjects of homophobia, racism, classism, income inequality, political unrest and family issues and going through all the emotions any human being would feel. Next with “204EVER” he went through a spiritual awakening of sorts and hit depression and addiction big time, but the creativity never stopped flowing. Getting better at his craft he managed to get YouTube sensation CupcakKe on his album. She was so into the track she even did a music video and uploaded it to her account for free. “Reset” was the next release that pulled songs that didn’t make the last two albums. It was somewhat of a revision of the past and bridging what he had learned into something new. Putting his awakened tools into action.
His most recent release “Mega M.A.N. Dos” is a play on his artist name and a superhero. The Heavy Metal/Screamo/Trap album goes hard like never before. Years of built up anger comes roaring out in a new fit of raging confidence. Putting every doubt of his to rest, the album cements his assertion as being “The Man”. The artwork was created by his cousin, Amanda Torres, who did an incredible job portraying him as a drag queen-gone-superhero cross between Mega Man and Dragonball Z with the Japanese style as well, considering the first track has an Asian woman begging for Mega M.A.N. Dos to awaken and save the world from toxic masculinity.
Currently there are a couple albums in the works. Their working titles are “Almost Famous” (guitar driven, Pop Rock, Sadcore) and “Beauty Sleep” (R&B/Electronic Chill).
