2012: Top Story: Faces of 2012: Toby Kaar

More than just a button pressing beatsmith, Cork lad Toby Kaar makes groove-laden electronica so danceable that he just can’t help himself. His live show is one of infectious enthusiasm, with Toby throwing shapes to a melting pot of hip-hop, house and IDM. He also knows how to cut a remix, having reworked music by Funeral Suits, Nouveaunoise and Sacred Animals.

Describe yourselves and your music.

It’s just beats and stuff, like.

Who or what inspires you?

What was the strangest thing that happened to you in 2011?

A bird flew into my kitchen window and died.
