Downlink has been punishing dancefloors all over the planet with his heavy brand of bass. With roots in Jungle & DnB, he is no stranger to the vile side of subsonic dance music and has set out to explore a frantic, adrenaline fuelled style, influenced by everything from heavy metal to astrophysics. He is a Rottun Recordings regular, but has also released on some of the biggest labels in the game like Mau5trap and OWSLA. While consistently coming up with sick material time after time, he has gained DJ support from all of the biggest names in the scene. His successes on the Beatport charts have been extraordinary. He managed to hold down 4 of the top 10 spots in dubstep at one time and has had multiple tracks hit #1 in both dubstep and drum n bass. Recently Downlink's skills have landed him a prominent role in the production of legendary nu-metal band Korn's tenth studio album. His keen ear for sound even led him to being given the honour of mixing the album. He then went on to support the band on tour in America and Europe, playing to massive arenas, time and time again leaving crowds stunned with his energetic performance. 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

Schoolboy, has quickly established his name in the EDM world after releasing his massive remix of SHM & Knife Party's "Antidote" which has received an incredible amount of support from Knife Party, who has played the remix at every major festival around the globe. Amidst all the hype, his highly anticipated EP "The Science Project" was released under Excision's label (Rottun) in early 2012. The EP has 6 original bass driven tracks, most notably "Zombies Ate My Neighbours" which quickly climbed the beatport charts and swiftly became a fan favorite. Not only did his EP do well, but his remixes of "Why I Love You So" by Cassius (Kanye West/Jay Z), "Da Funk" by Daft Punk, and "Nation of Wusses" by Infected Mushroom (Dim Mak) among others, have gained major support from the likes of Koan Sound, Kill The Noise, Qulinez, Mord Fustang, Excision, Skism, Dirtyphonics, Steve Aoki, Zomboy, Dieselboy, and one of his earliest supporters of "Checkmate"Skrillex, and the list goes on.
Now with his highly awaited single "Aftershock" (Subhuman) on the verge of release, his popularity has supernovaed resulting in massive emissions of anticipation for his first music video release.
Not only has Schoolboy been hard at work in the studio, he's been touring and playing venues and festivals all over North America. In between shows he has been collaborating with fellow producer, James Egbert, on a 3-song EP expected to reach Earth in Fall 2012.

Worthy has received the recognition of major producers who have played his tracks including Sven Vath, Diplo, and Richie Hawtin, among many.
Hailing from the Windy City, STUNNA (aka JAY CAPPO) has been deeply immersed in the Chicago music scene for many years. Schooled in piano study from an early age, his love of jazz music turned him on to the sounds of HERBIE HANCOCK, especially his early-70's work with synthesizers and electronics. At the age of 12, Jay acquired a drum machine and an 8-bit sampling keyboard and began to experiment with the jazzier sounds he'd listened to and also with the current sounds of Chicago House that was at the time, in its formative years. A number of years were spent performing in bands on the keyboards and alongside DJs at parties. His discovery of Rap music and the walls of layered samples by groups such as PUBLIC ENEMY fascinated him and he made it his personal mission to dig and find the sources of these diverse sounds he was hearing. Jay realized that many of the current sounds within these layers were actually pieces from the jazz and funk he'd heard only a few years before. He was now hooked on the science of connecting his own sounds with various parts of music's funky past. He joined local Chicago funk bands and began working with House producers such as ROY DAVIS JR. in the mid-to-late 90's, playing keys and collaborating on original tracks and remixes. Around this time he began hearing more and more of the sped-up breakbeats of many of his favorite jazz-funk drummers that were now being used by Jungle and Drum+Bass producers. After accumulating many vintage synths and new studio gear, Jay delved into creating his own brand of D+B and locked himself in the studio. When he emerged, he'd written over 50 tracks and began DJing out to fine-tune his songs. Currently, Jay continues to work on D+B, promotes many shows around Chicago, tours with bands, DJ's around the world, and hosts the weekly radioshow 'THE GREENROOM' Wednesdays on WWW.BASSDRIVE.COM. He has signed tracks to 31 RECORDS, OUTSIDER, OFFWORLD, LDNB, SOUL DEEP, INFLUENZA, IM: LTD, ROTATION DEEP, FUNK STAR, HUSTLE AUDIO, SOUNDTRAX, POINT AUDIO, WESTBAY, STRICTLY-DIGITAL, PHUZION, DEFUNKED, FOKUZ, VIBEZ, PHUNKFICTION, BIOS, LEVITATED, FUTURE RETRO, LUCKY DEVIL, performed on THE FAREED HAQUE GROUP's lastest release for MAGNA CARTA RECORDS, and has also co-produced/performed on tracks and remixes for NEW ORDER, ESTHERO, TERRY CALLIER, MISSY ELLIOT, RON CARROLL, BARBARA TUCKER, BOMBAY RECORDS, NITELIFE COLLECTIVE, SONY, WARNER BROTHERS, DEFECTED RECORDS and TALKIN' LOUD. Currently, he's working on his own original Drum+Bass productions as well as collaborations with artists worldwide such as AMANING, BACHELORS OF SCIENCE, BIONIC1, BROTHER, CONTOUR, CYBASS, DECADE, DONNIE DUBSON, FX909, HENREE, INDIVISION, J-CUT, JAY ROME, KUBATKO, LENZMAN, MAD VIBES, MATIZZ, MECHANIC, METHOD ONE, MIXMASTER DOC, PEYO, PLACE42, RANDOM MOVEMENT, REDEYES, SOL.ID, SUBMORPHICS, SUBZ, SWITCH, WILL MILES, and Chicagoans PIPELINE, RELEASE, RADIATA, GRANDMARQUEE and LAMEBRANE.

After helping to start one of the BIGGEST production companies in St. Louis, he has been steadily involved in music, party production (Space Age Pimpin) and just having a good time for over 13 years. Playing almost "EVERY" club around, he has always had his ears finely tuned when it comes to the "next big thing".
