dCoded is a trio of instrumental music formed by David Marcè (drums), Xavi Orga (bass) and Víctor Martínez (guitar).
Our influences are extensive (funk, jazz, blues, etc.), but we always start from the loudness of rock. Lluís Pi performs with us in our live shows, contributing to the visuals with his magic and creativity.
Our first album, Synapse (March 2016) was totally self-produced, with few technical means but with many hours of dedication and work. During that year and the next one, we offered some presentation concerts in festivals around Barcelona area: Totum Revolutum 3.0, Espai Vapor (Terrassa), Peacock Art Festival (Rubí), etc.
In this second album (Perceptual Isolation, April 2020), we have invested more time and technical means in the recording and mixing stages. All the recording and mixing process has been carried out in Uqbar Estudis and VMG Studio (Terrassa, Spain). The mastering stage has been carried out in Euridia Estudios (Bilbao, Spain) by Ibon Larruzea.
For the new album, we have taken much more risk. It has also been a challenge at a compositional and technical level. We have been submerged in new sounds, new structures, and even new composition techniques.
Perceptual Isolation includes seven tracks: six original compositions plus Massive Attack’s Teardrop adaptation.
