They soon started gathering an audience online. Encouraged by the response, Amit decided to pursue music production professionally and enrolled in a music production course run by renowned music producer and composer Gaurav Dayal at Beatfactory Acadmey. After completion of the course, Amit started producing songs again in late 2009. By the end of 2010, both Amit and Anshul, put together, had written total 10 new songs which Amit had arranged, performed and produced at his home studio. They continued publishing the songs online on their website on a regular basis.
Eight of these songs were also published in the popular computer technology magazine Digit's Annual Issue in December 2010. By the end of 2010, Sifar had started performing live as well. The live lineup included Deepak Singh on Drums, Yapang Lemtur on Bass, and Nikhil Auluck on Guitars in addition to Amit on Vocals, and Guitars. By February 2011, they had performed at some significant venues in India like IIT Roorkee, IIT Gandhinagar, IIT Patna, ISB Hyderabad, and had also performed on Delhi's popular radio stations HIT 95 FM and Radio City 91.1 FM At the start of 2011, they decided to take their production to the next level and record the songs at a professional studio. While they were scouting for the right studio, Delhi based Beatfactory Music (also run by Gaurav Dayal) offered them a recording and artist management contract.
With this newfound support, Amit started recording the songs at Beatfactory Music studio. As with previously home recorded demos, he continued to perform and record almost everything himself except Drums, which were now performed by Deepak. The album is due for a digital release through May and June 2011, and a physical release sometime in July 2011.
