This website is in remembrance of Graham March, a friend that I will never forget.
Graham, you are the most reliable, talented, patient, thoughtful, loving person I ever met. You showed me so many things in life. Your devoted help and support for me in college will not go unforgotten. Anything and everything that I create would not be possible without your guidance, skills and passion for the arts. I would not be the person I am today without knowing you and from that I carry you in my thoughts and heart wherever I may go. You are deeply missed Graham.
Desimal was the moniker of Canadian drum and bass producer Graham March. Creating a highly unique style of neurofunk, his work was signed to a number of important drum and bass labels. With a sound and style all his own, Desimal has the ability to obliterate a system in a matter of seconds. Within the first few bars of any of his tracks, you know immediately its his work and what you are in for.
The Inner Battle
In 1999, Graham March was diagnosed with Schizophrenia.
Schizophrenia is a psychiatric diagnosis that describes a mental disorder characterized by impairments in the perception or expression of reality and by significant social or occupational dysfunction. A person experiencing schizophrenia is typically characterized as demonstrating disorganized thinking, and as experiencing delusions or hallucinations, in particular auditory hallucinations.
I always tried to get Graham to explain to me what it was like inside his head. This is what he told me: “It’s like, 200 hundred channels of Television all on at once and you can’t turn them off, nothing but unwanted noise and thoughts.”
I never knew or could understand what he went through suffering from this disease, but I do know he loved his family and friends very much. I hope one day they can find answers to treat this horrible disease.

Born on November 18, 1980
Graham March grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada.
He was quick to discover his many talents as kid, from being able to ride a unicycle practically on his first crack, to drawing spectacular renderings from an early age throughout his life.
Graham was a quick learner for anything that interested him. By the time he was 13 years old, Graham could play most songs on radio by ear, on the piano.
Graham began creating original electronic music in 1994, using an Amiga computer and pro tracker software and influenced by early breakbeat, such as “Prodigy”. Graham went on to explore different styles ranging from trance, to downtempo, to eventually drum and bass. Reserving his tracks until 1999, mainly for small independent releases, internet distro and playing out live with his PA act, “phreshly spun” at various clubs & shows.
In 1999 he focused attention on producing cutting edge drum and bass and the exploring the rising dnb scene locally. As a producer he has always been to establish his sound, while also progressing on new ideas and concepts. His tracks have always been created to maximize his own live sets and are always aimed with dance floor in mind. Much of Graham’s current styles stem from past experience with many different styles, which resulted in many different elements appearing his tracks.
In 2001 Graham had become a father to a beautiful boy named, Seth. That same year, to no ones surprise his music had been released through different labels worldwide. Graham’s objective of reaching a broad range of listeners to establish his sound in the scene had taken shape.
