Systems in Blue is a German pop band, with the following band members, Rolf Köhler, Michael Scholz, and Detlef Wiedeke. The band members started in the beginning of 60's, working in different bands in 60's and 70's, Rolf Köhler worked for several different artists such as Blonker, Uriah Heep, Blind Guardian, Helloween, Grave Digger, Gamma Ray, Iron Savior, Savage Circus, Tokyo, Mephistopheles, and Kin Ping Meh (featuring Geff Harrison) among others. However, they are famously known for their collaboration as singers with Modern Talking in 1984-1987 and 1998-2000 and Blue System in 1987-1997.
In 2001, the musicians filed a lawsuit against BMG because they felt that they did not get compensated fairly for their work on Dieter Bohlen productions, such as Modern Talking, Blue System, C. C. Catch, Nino de Angelo, Chris Norman, Thomas Forstner, and others. The lawsuit was settled out of court. BMG Berlin confirmed that the studio musicians who filed the lawsuit contributed to the chorus of the Blue System and Modern Talking songs (besides America, Victory, and Universe) and all voices were then mixed together and multiplied electronically to get the typical sound for the high-pitched voices.

In 2003, together with songwriter / producer Thomas Widrat they founded a project Systems In Blue. The first single Magic Mystery released on March 22, 2004 got into TOP-100 of Amazon and climbed up to 12 at the Maxi-Charts. In the "European Dance Charts", the single reached No 1. After changing the label and two more singles they released their first album Point Of No Return on September 20, 2005.
