R.I.P. Graham March aka Desimal

Some extremely sad news has been haunting me these last couple of days.. so much so I could not bring myself to be around my computer at all this weekend because of a great sadness that flowed thru me. Graham March aka Desimal, recently commited suicide and is no longer with us.

I came to know him about 3 years ago, when Armada Recordings was being assembled. Daniel Cyanide, who is credited with discovering Graham's musical talents and exposing his sound to the world of drum and bass, and Evan I.N.I were the ones who initially linked me to him and his music. So from introductions to conversations, we chatted many times about music and a little bit about Canadian life. In some of our most recent [and memorable] conversations, we worked closely together to help edit and wrap up his interview/article for, originally written by DNBN Family member, Eric E-Dub.

He was always kind and friendly when we spoke and he was always very generous in giving his tracks out to friends. His sound was such an innovative and unique brand, no one will ever come close to touching it. A true legend has passed, and although his life has ended his music will carry his memory and live on forever. Rest in peace Graham March, you will be missed.

In his honour, 2 tribute mixes have been made and are available to download.
