Very strange - for me

d'8( b)~\slurDown

The macro \slurDown makes a setting that affect all slurs following the command. Since you have specified it after the slur, it doesn't have any effect. Also, since you only want to modify a single slur, not all future slurs, it's better to either say
```
\once \override Slur #'direction = #DOWN d'8( b)~

or even better use the  following shorthand:

d'8_( b)~

```
The reason that you get the problem at all, is that you use \voiceOne (which is what you should do since this is the upper voice of the two in the same stave) and \voiceOne specifies that all stems should point upwards and all slurs should go upwards.
