This year keeps marching forward. We're preparing for the biggest step for us this year, so far: on 5th of November (19:00) we will open for our biggest influence, Machinae Supremacy during Pixelcon 4. It will be the biggest SID rock event of this country so far. Come and let's party!
This year's Fuction demoparty is a must have event for all the sid-rock fans out there: SIDNIFY and Double Score Dungeon will warm up the stage on 9th Friday, then SIDRIP is going to blast on 10th Saturday at 6PM.
The SID jukebox contains every SID that we've ever remixed and SID version of our ReLive CD's content also available on the site.
Our next gig is the usual (and band's favorite) Árok Party saturday night at Ajkarendek, 30th July 2016. After 6 years we will play again in the original formation: Gery has joined to the band to make our songs more solid with his rhythm guitar.
Official concert info: SIDRIP Alliance @ QB Party, Sülysáp, 20:30 CET, 14th May 2016. Be there.
Less official concert info: Come and kick off the summer season with us! We promise a great tracklist, friends, palinka, goulash and sleeping in a car's trunk for the whole weekend.
SIDRIP will play live (as usual) on the Function 2015 demoscene meeting at 12. September, 6 PM in Budapest. If you can not be there follow the party events online as we have prepared something big ...
Concert section has been updated with the latest photos, videos and info of our past (PixelCon, QB Party, Árok Party 2015) and upcoming gigs (Function 2015).
If you downloaded FLAC/OGG/WMA packages from our site please redownload them as the last song (Commando High Score) had wrong metatag (same as Swing). Kudo to Anssi Saari for the warning!
For its fifth birthday the band will give not one but two live gigs (MegaLIVE) on Árok Party 2015 at Ajkarendek. The first one will start at 20h, 14th August, while the second at 19:45h, 15th August after the debut concert of a new band called Double Score Dungeon. We have prepared some surprises (not only for your ears), so come and celebrate with us!
It seems we will have busy year: two gigs within a month! The first one will be at 9th May on PixelCon party (1 Blaha Lujza square, Budapest), the second at 16th May on QB Party (6 Szent Istvan square, Sülysáp) which is a new demoscene party in Hungary. So you have no reason (like have another program) to stay away, so see You there!
To cut it short: party with long history, old band, new place and songs. At 4th of October 8pm SIDrip Alliance strikes down again to your ear.
This gig was a difficult one, but on the end it turned out well. Many things happend: slug on NP's face, damaged drum, missing cables two hours late with the start, audio cable repairing, lasershow (thx ViTi and Joshi) and terrorist ... no, ninjas
For pictures (thx to Jootka) click HERE.
As it seems we're following a tradition of last-minute decisions when it comes to live gigs every year. This time our brill bassist Hermit had an important show to play elsewhere during the date of the next AROK gig - and without a good bassist, playing a SIDrip Alliance show is impossible. Fortunately for us it turned out that Gery (Vincenzo's brother who kept helping the band since the start) is a pro-grade bassist who can be a great substitute of Hermit. So we will meet onstage again at AROK Party, 19th of July to make you all sweat there!

It's time to write down (fortunately) the usually: how fenomenal was this gig, the mood, the audience and how we enjoyed playing to our friends but it would be pointless. Who was there and listened Rage of Emperor (our first own song written by Vincenzo) and Diablo - understand us. Thanks boys and girls, organizers, friends and fans!
For pictures click HERE.
At 14 September (saturday) night on the Function party (Budapest) we will fire the engines and make some noise again :) This gig will be a milestone for the band, so be prepared...
We had an amazing gig again! First we worried because we had to play inside a gym (because the rain) but Vincenzo made miracle with the sound system. Viki was dancing with the band and with the audience too given some visual amusement too :) After the shorter (but harder) concert everybody was satisfied and tired: this is how revel the hungarian scener!
Thank you for the organizers to make this great party year over year!

That was close: we barely could find free time to schedule our practice day. But in the end we solved the riddle so be prepaired for our gig at Arok Party at 6. July, 7pm! If you like electric music more you will be glad because ErrorPort/SoulVoid will play before us!

Who was lucky to be on our live gig at Revision Party near the stage could get our concert film on DVD. The film contains our concert at Function 2011 party in professional quality. Now the DVD is freely downloadable from our server:
A short time ago we stood on the stage with two nice girls (Ziona and Viki) and now it is history. We've got everything what we could ask for: enjoy to playing great tracks, friends, girls, singing audience and rock. For the first time you could hear Myth and Electric Jesus remixes from the band.
For pictures click HERE, to listen the concert click HERE (thx to Ziphoid, Topy and the SceneSat radio).
Function party - which is the most popular demoscene party of Hungary - will be held between 28 and 30 September, 2012 in Budapest. As in the past few years SIDrip Alliance will play live again at saturday night.
As the band didn't rest on summer you can listen new remixes among the old (and not so old) ones. We will bring some DVDs of the last years concert so be near of the stage :)
If someone missed our last gig at Arok Party then here is the chance to get a little taste of it thanks to Vincenzo and Vector. We enhanced our songlist with some immortal tracks like Supremacy (with Hermit's flute solo) or Second Reality. [video]
We release a new studio remix into the wild: please welcome Ben Daglish's crazy music: Krakout [mp3] [flac]!
This one will be found on our first studio album which we would like to release in this year.
The remix page has got some update: Drudgery from Chabee, Dwarf Fly from Vincenzo, and Electric Jesus from NecroPolo, which is dedicated to the memory of Intensity and won the remix compo of Arok Party 2012.
There are two more interesting remixes from him: Test Drive and Kyyhylly arranged to floppy drives :) using Vincenzo's floppy sound libraries.
These tracks are available in FLAC format too on our remix page.
Árok Party is always a special place for us because this is where we born. We are among friends from the beginning and there is no we and you only the party.
This was true this year too: we could give our best performance EVER. NecroPolo's question "Should the blood splutter or flow?" the answer was "Splutter!!!". Later when Hermit played Supremacy on his flute and the audience had started singing ... we thought the mood can't be higher. It could. Thanks to everyone who was there!!!
For pictures click HERE, videos coming soon.
SIDrip Alliance will play third time at Ajkarendek, 7th July, 20h. Usual place (our favorite) but new set of songs: we have prepared some surprise :) Before our concert SOULVOID will tune the sound system with some Gameboy chip music. To shorten waiting you can watch videos of party last year.
It is time to redeem some debt, so pictures of Moleman 2 and Revision 2012 (thx to Romeo Knight) concerts are online now. As bonus here are some exclusive pictures from one of our band rehearsal.
SIDrip Alliance will play on one of the biggest (and youngest) demoparty of the world - REVISION 2012 - in Saarbrücken (Germany) at 8th April. It will be a HUGE party with many interesting events/competitions/seminars so come and be there!
It took a little more than one month but here it is. Results of Vincenzo and Vector's hard work can be found here:
Another concert: this time on afterparty of Moleman 2 movie on 17th November. It will be a great event for the scene members and lovers with many performers, so don't miss it!. Visit organizer's homepage for more details and the trailer of the movie.
No doubt, this was our best live gig until now. The enthusiastic audience make our day from the beginning (thanks!!!), we lit our rockets and sent everybody to the C64 heaven :)
The power amps sounded very good and the recordings were fine too. Now we have to process them. If everything will be allright we can upload them within a month. Until then you can watch pictures from the show.
The SceneSat radio broadcast the concert, what you can listen here (from the 8. minute). We gave an interview too, it can be found here (from the 50. minute).
If somebody missed our prevous live show at Árok Party (or because it wasn't enough) here is the chance: this year we will play live again on the Function party (Saturday fever...). We will crushing the walls with serious amps and try to overhelm the noise of the PCs :)
Our remix section has got an update: this time with Vincenzo's great Newcomer remix, which achieved second place at Árok Party remix compo.
If you missed this great party you can try to get the feeling with the uploaded videos and pictures. We played "alltime favorite Commando", "surprise Ghostbusters", "Yello Race vs Outrun" and "don't you know this? Power Drift". We enjoyed playing these great SID musics again, thanks to the organisers of the party for the opportunity!
Two new remixes of NecroPolo are downloadable from the site: BC Bill (Dreadnought on the Fly) and Zak (McKrackenica edition). With this Zak McKracken remix NecroPolo could win the Árok Party remix compo this year.
You asked: some tracks from Function X concert are downloadable in MP3, OGG and lossless FLAC format. Download and enjoy!
We are returning to our birthplace to entertain the audience with 8bit memory. We will be there with full crew (with Hermit on the board) with new songs to kick out the wall of the gym :) Don't miss to read the official homepage of the party because something big is coming...
Later than 24 December, but not too late to wish you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2011 with this music collection. SIDrip Alliance celebrates end of 2010 this way. You may find out some tunes you like...
Finally you can watch the best moments our live concert at Function X party. Thanks to our mystical anonymous friend who recorded and edited the video and to Füvesi for the additional shoots.
Because stalling our previous server we've moved our site to a new server thanks to a friend who is also a big C64 fan: Gabucino. Mega thanks!
Yeah, the rumors were true: SIDrip Alliance will play live at Function X party, Budapest, Hungary on 11 September, 20h.
Updated! It was a fantastic evening thanks to the numerous and enhusiastic audience. Poison and Leon were boosting the night as an intro band and as our biggest fans too :) For our biggest surprise the (mostly PC fan) audience chose Last Ninja remix as extra song (instead of Duke Nukem).
Pictures of the concert can be seen here.
We are radio stars :) Our last song (From First to Last - a Last Ninja Medley) has played in SLAY Radio. Thanks Slaygon, Boz and Anna Black!
Finally after many hours of recording and mastering NecroPolo / SIDrip Alliance proudly presents: From First to Last - a Last Ninja Medley. This is the studio version of the live song which debuted at Árok Party #12.
You can download this song and other remixes of the crew from here.
Videos of our performance at Árok Party #12 are ready and online. You can watch them here. It seems our news will contains so many THX. This could be because we are very lucky and we have so much talented supporters. So here it comes again: thanks to Füvesi who recorded, edited and uploaded these videos!
Now you can read our site in hungarian language.
Site is updated with information about the band and some news (what are actualy quite old). In the future the site will updated regularly with infos, date of concerts, new remixes, etc.
Pre version of the official site with soundtracks of the concert is up! Big kudo to Singular Crew for hosting our big files. THX!
We made it. It was a fantastic feeling for us playing together these incredible songs. First time is always a little special. Thanks for everyone who made this event available and for the audience who was awesome. Next year we will be there for sure :)
"...and at last, we reveal the secret: This year we are going to surprise our visitors with a live concert! It's going to be the loudest event ever in the Arok Party series! SIDrip Alliance is going to debut at our open-air stage. You can expect familiar remixes from the 6 members band with concert-quality sound! (Thanks to the Hungarian Demoscene Association it is going to be really LOUD, and really QUALITY sound!) Be there, don't miss the birth of this cool formation!"
