Inspired by John Hughes classic 'The Breakfast Club' - Saturday tells the story of a group of teenagers finding their place in the world. Championing enchanting vocals, classic synths, powerful harmonies and punchy, 80's inspired drums, this track resounds an atmospheric sound that is indulgently retro, immersive and packed with nostalgia. Saturday is sure to bring a smile to your face, especially if you harbour a love for 80s 'coming of age' films.
Young and Wild and Free is the second single from Syst3m Glitch debut concept album, Beyond Stars (coming 4th June).
The sax intro and incessant pulsation of the bass evoked perfectly the mix of young abandonment and desire. Like a race against the relentless passing of time, the song describes that moment when you realise the future is full of possibilities but all you can do is try to remember every single moment of the present.
Syst3m Glitch mix of 80's nostalgia, powerful vocal performance and stunning production is the work of a true genius talent. A one band power-house.

Mondmann released his first heavily future bass influenced track 'Tell me what you want' striking a new path of Synthwave influenced future pop. After experimenting a while with synths and singers Mondmann started to work on his very first album and approached Aztec Records with early demos.
Together they pushed the Artists sound further and further until BEYOND started to unfold. Each track has its own mindset, its own little story to tell. BEYOND is Mondmann's outbreak of his musical boundaries to finally find to himself and do what he alway wanted - little musical journeys to dream to.
Combining the melodic nostalgia of synthwave with modern aesthetics like vocal chops and valiant beats Mondmann creates new, interesting soundscapes to please both sides, the old school retro synthwave listeners as well as new listeners coming to the scene.
