For those out there who haven't heard of the incredible Downlink, also known as Sean Casavant, perhaps the letter "R" will give you a clue. Yes, Downlink is one of the original Rottun Recording trio, which also consists of Datsik and Excision, the latter of whom started the legendary label company. These three musketeers would come out with some of the very first modern dubstep tracks that would explode onto the EDM scene.
Casavant would come up with his unique moniker while working some tracks on a slow computer and playing the Nintendo game The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The game's main character was called Link, and it stuck with Casavant. He was trying to come up with a spacey stage name, and after searching through a glossary of outer space terms online, the word "downlink" immediately stood out. After learning that the word referred to a way of transmitting signals from satellites to the earth, he knew he had found his DJ identity.
Downlink produces most of his tracks in his native city of Kelowna in British Columbia. The environment has a significant impact on the kind of music he produces, though often his immediate surroundings (his room, the smell of the house, the lighting, and so on) has a greater impact than the city at large. The biggest effect the city of Kelowna has had on Downlink's output has been its history of heavy bass music, which certainly contributes to the DJ's impressive and hard-hitting tracks.
Downlink would have no classical music training. Instead, he would use his intuition to learn tricks and structures by ear. While he is familiar with major and minor keys, he appreciates the electronic music genre because it allows for the breaking of classical rules more than any other contemporary genre.
Downlink would begin producing music for the simple fact that he enjoyed it. He would be a lover of music since childhood and would be especially attracted to the genre of drum n' bass. This wild and experimental genre would awaken in Casavant the awareness that he could produce electronic music himself. He would very quickly develop an obsession with electronic composition. By the time dubstep was emerging, Downlink's skills would be well honed, allowing himself to quickly build his reputation in the scene.
Downlink's creative process is fairly mellow – it usually begins with a cup of tea. He will often start creating a song just from the snare and the kick, but other times he will spend his day just making patches. The task at hand usually depends on his mood and on whether a certain track has a deadline. These days, Downlink is in such high demand that he rarely chooses what to work on, instead completing collaborations and specific requests. Because the electronic music genre has so few rules, Downlink is continually developing his sense of what makes a song complete. While there will always be some small detail to improve or tweak, only a few audience members will notice an element so minute. Downlink is always happy to get feedback from his fans, as he finds it encouraging that people follow his output so closely.
Some of Downlink's most successful early tracks would be "Ignition" and "Factory", and he would continue to pump out hardcore and high quality tracks that would leave brostep in the dust. Whenever Downlink drops these massive tracks, the dancefloor is absolutely destroyed.
Rumor has it that before Sean Casavant became the legendary Downlink, he was a lumberjack in his native British Columbia.
