Everything's Nice & Household Management Present: Downlink - MAY 29, 2011
DOWNLINK Kelowna, British Columbia Rottun Recordings
If you've been paying any attention to the dubstep world you will have noticed the rise to the top Downlink has enjoyed with Rottun partners Excision and Dastik. With nearly every release reaching the top 10 on Beatport or even multiple lengthy stays at #1, its no doubt that Downlink is one of the hottest dubstep acts on the planet. Downlink has been punishing floors all over the planet with his heavy brand of dubstep. With roots in Jungle & DnB, he is no stranger to the vile side of subsonic dance music. Growing up in a cold industrial town in British Columbia, Canada, he was first introduced to dubstep in 2007 and soon after took to production. While maintaining an appreciation for sparse and laid-back dubstep, Downlink set out to explore a more frantic, adrenaline fuelled style, influenced by everything from heavy metal to astrophysics. His first two releases charted at #1 on several popular online distributors and soon he found his way onto Rottun Recordings which seemed a suiting place for his music. With the release of his "Ignition EP" he has gained DJ support from the likes of Excision, Datsik, Stenchman, Borgore, DZ, 16 Bit, Dieselboy, Evol Intent, Crookers and many more. Downlink is not one to be pigeon-holed and is constantly on a quest to evolve and refine his sound. With this in mind, one thing will always remain constant - a pure unadulterated heavy listening experience.

He specializes in broken beats, although he has been know to drop sick Electro set now and then as well.

Mr.Yurm looks to progress the sounds that have taken care of him even further.
