dreDDup was formed in 1997 in Novi Sad. The band's first official release was Abnormal Waltz from 1998 the soundtrack for the movie Noir that was never finished. Following this the band wrote music for movies and theater plays (Poslednja Krapova Traka, Footfalls, U malom dvorcu, Hronika Sterijinog pozorja, and others) and recorded ambient sounds for TV shows at the Radio Television of Serbia. They recorded their first official studio album Mr Borndeads Feast in 2004 released for MoocSound. Album release was followed by a Serbian tour.
After Mr Borndeads Feast and positive reviews from the press, the band started making their second album changing the sound and making it more crossoveer. Future Porn Machine was released in 2007 for Insurrection Records from Belgrade. This album dealt with "pornographic future". Another tour took place and the band visited more than 40 cities. Almost the complete line-up of the band was changed in the beginning of 2008 and the band started working on the new sound. In late 2008 they also remixed some of Nine Inch Nails songs and did a collaboration album with Japanese spoken word artist Kenji Siratori and recorded a DIY cover album 'Into the Monolith' for their friends and fans.
dreDDup played at numerous music festivals from 2006 to 2009 including the EXIT Festival, String, Refuse Resist 6 Samhain, Go Fest, Determination and D:S. At the end of the year the band filmed a 'Industrial Renaissance' DVD, a 45 minute long movie about the band containing the complete video clip collection and some rare live video footage which was previously unreleased. It was released in February 2009 and was selected to be a bonus DVD for their 2009 album El Conquistadors.
