Cartoon is a
music collaboration between producers and musicians Darragh O'Connor, Bob
Jackson and the finest jazz and soul musicians in Cork City, Ireland.
Cartoon released their debut EP First to Break on the exclusive Parisian
label Brique Rouge in August 2003. Subsequently the b-side track "Time
Change" featuring Chicago diva Karen Underwood has been released on several
house compilations including a special remix EP, copies of which sold out in
just 6 days.
What distinguishes Cartoon from their fellow house music producers are their
additional talents as live musicians. Instead of slotting into the usual
producer/DJ category Cartoon have formed a versatile live band complete with
a powerful horn section, two highly experienced jazz/funk guitarists, three
singers as well as keys and drums from Darragh and Bob respectively.
As a result live music fans who may never dare venture to a club see a 'big
name DJ' are being awakened to the previously undiscovered pleasures of the
fusion of jazz, soul and funk with house music through Cartoon's
scintillating live performances.
