Creche started life in, what was, an up-and-coming Shoreditch in February 2010. Just a couple of DJ friends wanting to play a fresh, more musical, uplifting and eclectic soundtrack to the East London underground party scene.
From humble beginnings of 80 friends to 1000 people and queues running down Brick Lane in just 5 parties. Those legendary day parties at Cargo, Bricklane’s Brickhouse and The Queen of Hoxton had an overwhelming emphasis on doing the opposite of what was going on in East London back then; which was warehouse parties. Instead, Creche took quirky club venues with cool outdoor terraces or roof gardens, where full-day parties could take place. With decent toilets and good bar service, where drinks could be got easily. It was a refreshing change from the tired warehouse scene , with everyone fighting for the same 10 spaces. That combined with the music policy of everything from disco through to cutting edge house music had, by accident, created something unique.
In October 2011 we held ‘The Big One’ , now regarded by many as one of the best large scale house raves ever thrown in London. Pairing Jamie Jones and Kerri Chandler, who had never met each other, never mind played together, again provided a unique musical experience which took Creche from the freshest intimate underground day party, to a full on rave of deep house bliss . The event took place at the Ministry of Sound, with the outdoor car park being turned into a raving terrace heaven. From 2pm until 6am Monday morning people of all walks of life danced until the very last beat; special days. What was to follow was a series of legendary events at Ministry, whilst in the background, the scene exploded in London with many new parties starting up with a similar musical basis.
By mid 2013, the music was starting to change, DJ fees had gone through the roof, there was loads of new parties all trying to do the same thing and we felt like it was time to take a step back, end on a high so the last london party for, what was to be a couple of years, took place at Pulse, ‘Creche of The Titans’. This sell out event marked the end of Creche’s 4 year run. From 80 people to 3000, Creche had pioneered the fresh wave of house music explosion in London and now others were to take the batton and push forward.
In 2016-2017 we returned to London with some intimate parties, keeping things low-key and returning to our original routes. Once again using unique venues, the Bow Arts Club, and some never before used venues in now trendy Tottenham and Curtain Road shoreditch.
In 2018 we feel things have gone full circle. London needs freshening up again, and so, we feel the time’s right to bring back some Deeper House music vibes in London and step the party up a gear again. We hope you will join us. x
