System features 8 tracks taken from the same sessions when Jackson recorded his VF music and installation project F O R M A T.

F O R M A T saw Jackson release 12 tracks on a series of different phsyical formats, from 7″s and cassettes, to DAT and reel-to-reel, all of which were presented at an installation alongside bespoke video pieces. Jackson then released the music on triple vinyl.

According to Jackson, the sounds “range from melodic IDM and driving electro to motor city techno and tripped out industrial house excursions.”
