The long awaited debut release by Irish producer Toby Kaar has finally arrived.
Spread over four tracks, Gumbrielle EP is tensely arranged euphoric beat music, bastardised, alienised and revitalised for a future dance floor.
“The EP was made on a 9 year old computer, which has started to pack in. A lot of the samples were things I found in libraries, pretty basic stuff that was flipped essentially”, explains Toby. “I started making music when my brother downloaded a cracked copy of Fruity Loops 4. I started making loops and patterns, with no musical theory. It was more the shapes I was interested in. That's still the case. The interest in actual music came after that - making the stuff got me into other people's work.”
Despite the absence of any release until now, Toby has earned a reputation for his exhilarating live performances, which translates well on the energetic Gumbrielle EP.
