Born in Mauritius, the island’s favorite groove crafter and DJ, Cream Cracker, is a passionate record collector and music lover who’s collection and knowledge of deep house surpasses his years of collecting it. Falling madly in love with hip hop and house music in the 90’s, he spent his formative teenage melting beats and acid tracks…with a sole idea in mind: unearthing all the hidden treasures of house and hip hop music, leaving no stone unturned. Later on, he started getting into the same process with other musical styles such as Jazz, Soul, Funk…His sets share similar class, burning up dance floors wherever he goes and he makes sure that the flag for ‘hard core deep house’ flies high for years to come.
An island girl to the core, Anouchka has been immersed in music from a very early age. She started singing in the Curepipe church choir when she was 8. She then pushed on as a teenager and performed in bars and restaurants with various bands. She developed a real passion for jazz and the music creation scene. It came thereby as no surprise when she teamed up with Mauritian jazz pianist Belingo Faro to cut her teeth performing in luxury resorts. As a jack of all trades, she also tried opera singing at the Conservatoire François Mitterrand, world fusion rock with the ensemble La foule alongside Nitin Pendiah, to finally settle down with Patyatann, a Mauritian fusion band with whom she released an album called “Sanpek” in august 2016. Following this, she collaborated with other prestigious musicians on various opuses including Michel Bavajee aka Zulu on the album “Zulu” and Dean Nookadu, a jazz musician on the album “Porgy Ek Bess”.
Her longing for new experiences and encounters kept on growing year after year and she is now part of 5 different bands. In 2017, she joined the following ensembles: Dantan, an African and fusion music group; an electro duo with Maximillian Van Der Horst from South Africa; a house music trio with CreamCracker and the guitarist Vianney François; High Five, Dean Nookadu’s jazz band and she also continues her work with Patyatann.
