System Exclusive are Ari B and Matt Jones – a Pasadena, CA originated duo, balancing the hard edged
electronic pulse of old school synthwerks against hot-under-the-collar live drums and slashing post-punk
guitar. Ari’s melismatic alto completes the triangle, crowning the cyborg-rock compositions with a torn and
vulnerable human edge. Faced with the near-impossible task of making a living in California while working
as touring musicians, they put their life in storage, put a bed in the van, and have been living wherever the
shows take them. On a mission to make strangers misty in the disco throughout the US, UK, and
Europe…and wherever else fine records are sold.

The new album, ‘Click’ was conceived at maximum velocity across multiple borders, a venn diagram of
clanging post-punk thrust, neon lavender synthesizer latticeworks, and Ari’s tough yet tender alto
reaching for the streetlights. In the past two years System Exclusive have hauled their mini-synth “band in
a backpack” to 12 different countries, 20 different US states and all around the UK in desperate search of
a good time. They brazenly sought to record this album on the incredibly beautiful but isolated Portuguese
island of Saõ Miguel, and experienced a superstition-confirming level of setbacks, equipment breaking,
and cosmic nuttiness while tracking. Secret weapon and Bay Area producer extraordinaire K. Dylan
Edrich took those island-cursed stems and cultivated them into the sculpture garden of tunes that now lay
before you.
