Bleed Electric is the brainchild of Welsh based Music Producer and Media Specialist Chris Maguire aka Mug5. Hailing originally from Blackwood in South Wales, Chris has extensively worked his magic all over the world. With a musical taste much more eclectic than the average Joe, Chris spent 2 years putting together beats every time something highly emotional happened in his life. This creation of emotionally fueled beats and music was aptly named Bleed Electric and although at the time Chris was working on other projects, Bleed Electric showcased the multiple dimensions of Chris’ mind and personality sometimes going to depths completely unexpected. Metaphorically Chris was bleeding all his emotions into the electrical equipment he used to spawn the tunes.
During 2008 and even to the present day Chris spends every Screamadelica Studios down day working on Bleed Electric material and by the end of 2008 the self titled debut concept album had been fully formed and finished. Listening over and over whilst comparing the musical sounds to the detailed concept storyline Chris realized that although the music perfectly tells the story that unless someone was able to penetrate his mind they might not catch on to the sheer depth of the concept of this album. This is where both Silk and Siege stepped in to fully realize the potential of the Bleed Electric project and to make it something truly unique and musically different to anything that has ever been heard. Silk and Siege recorded their second mix-tape with Chris during November 2008 and the sheer quality of the lyricism and vocal delivery sparked the idea of turning Bleed Electric into a real band, one that is original and never before seen or done. Let’s call it the perfect marriage of skillset combined into one massive and powerful mix.
After 3 years, Bleed Electric was finally born! The addition of both Silk and Siege to the band has filled every void. The poetic, real lyrics penned by Silk and Siege clearly define the concept storyline making it clear to every listener. That coupled with the music also matching the concept perfectly makes for a very detailed album that has been thoroughly thought out and planned from seed all the way to crop. Mug5, Silk and Siege are visually a melting pot too with each individual coming from completely different backgrounds and enjoying completely different music than one another. This tied together makes Bleed Electrics originality of sound unlike anything that has ever existed before and that will probably not happen ever again. Let’s just put it down to fate. Being at the right place, at the right time.
Sit back and let Bleed Electric take you on a musical journey that you have never before experienced. There will be moments where it will scare you, moments it will force you to dance and anything [and everything] in between, above and beyond. Bleed Electric are history in the making. Make sure you can tell your friends that you loved Bleed Electric before anyone knew them!
