The System was formed in 1982 by Mic Murphy and David Frank. Their first album, Sweat, was released in 1983 and featured the dance single "You Are In My System". Their second album, X-periment featured the synth vibes they would become famous for, and in 1984 they appeared in the movie Beat Street. The Pleasure Seekers followed in 1985 and included the title track, later contributing songs to the movie Beverly Hills Cop, and to Chaka Khan, Mtume, and Phil Collins. In 1987 the group had their biggest success, with the song "Don't Disturb This Groove", which became their only Billboard Top 10 single. They also hit the Top 30 with the title song from the Eddie Murphy movie Coming To America. After their 1989 album Rhythm and Romance, The System disbanded, only to reunite for a 2000 album, ESP, then a second reunion in 2013 produced an album, System Overload.
