The System is an American synth-pop duo that debuted in the s, composed of vocalist-guitarist Mic Murphy  and seasoned session keyboardist David Frank. The band was founded in in New York and backed up by Paul Pesco on electric guitar and Kris Khellow on keyboards and synthesizers. The group is sometimes referred to as being "emotio-electro" because of its hi-tech, synthesizer-driven sound, married with passionate vocals and sensitive lyrics.
David Frank and Mic Murphy met in the early s while working for the soul-funk band Kleeer. The band's road manager was Mic Murphy, and although Murphy was obviously aware of Frank's skills, Frank was unaware Murphy could sing.
Frank then remembered Murphy and invited him to work on it. Murphy came up with the band's name, and within weeks "It's Passion" was receiving massive radio airplay in New York. The interest sparked enough interest for Mirage to give David and Mic an advance for an album.
Robert Palmer's cover of the song became a mainstream rock hit. InMurphy and Frank also wrote and produced "Pump the Nation," a one-off album for a project called Attitude. Attitude featured Khris Kellow, who worked on many of the System's later albums and appears as a member of the band in the movie Beat Street during the song "Baptize the Beat. Inthe group released its second album, X-Periment. Frank's expertise in recording studio technology gave the material a sound that many felt was ahead of its time.
The System's greatest success came in with the release of its 1 single " Don't Disturb This Groove ," from the album of the same name. Machat and Smith took control of the promotion and marketing of the duo on behalf of Atlantic and helped the duo achieve its biggest US Pop hit. The single reached No. The group would also reach No. Murphy recorded the solo album Touch  and charted in with a single from that project.
Frank found more recent success as a songwriter and producer,  most notably for hit singles such as Christina Aguilera 's " Genie in a Bottle " inand teen girl-group Dream 's " He Loves U Not " in In latethe group released the album Unreleased Unleasheda collection of prototype and unreleased songs recorded at various points over the span of The System's recording career.
