Toby Kaar's Guide To Cork
We could have given you the low-down on Ireland’s fastest-growing cultural hub ourselves, but it wouldn’t have been half as entertaining as this lively virtual tour, courtesy of the Rebel city’s favourite beatmaker, Toby Kaar. The UK-born, Cork-raised electronic whiz kindly agreed to give us some invaluable advice on where to eat, where to drink and where to carve and grind (it’s a skateboarding thing!)

These guys are doing some really nice stuff and they’ve got a lot of character. I’ve seen them a couple of times and sometimes they sound like The xx and then other times they do like, Grouper covers. If I was in a band, I’d want to be in a band that was that kind of mix of fun and interesting, you know? There’s three of them, two guys and a girl, they use a sampler and, I think, a tom drum because every band needs a tom drum these days. It’s more or less a standard band set-up but they’re doing some really leftfield stuff, which is nice to hear.
