“Dope remix. We’ll spin it up.”
Shaq aka DJ Diesel

“This remix makes me think of Daft Punk production. Wait, no, it makes me think of a Mercurius FM production.”
TuftsMania

“Arizona DJ somehow makes one of the greatest songs ever written even sexier. It may be possible to get pregnant just by playing this. You were warned.”
Rolling Stone Magazine

“Making us want to bust a move on one of those rainbow light-up dance floors is Mercurius FM’s remix.”
Vice Records

“Mercurius FM does it again people! We heart this remix.”
NerdyFrames.org

“A great remix of Daft Punk’s track ‘Contact’ has dropped into our audio lap and we’re loving it.”
Your Music Radar

“Creating enough blast for any early morning risers needing that last shot of adrenalin to push them through to 8am, the spirit of Mr Oizo & Armand Van Helden, Green Velvet type dimensions are sorely being created by Arizona’s Mercurius FM here. Breaking ground on a ceremonial 5-track pitch of booster rockets and smoky fire, Mercurius FM’s TR-909 dedication in skilful programming has certainly paid off. These tracks are definitely not for the faint-hearted.”
Aerial Noise

“I was halted by this LIFELIKE edit by Mercurius FM. When someone labels a song “edit” it usually means they added a bigger beat or minor synth work, often resulting in undeserved praise. But in this case MFM tweaks the original quite a bit; speeding things up and completely removing goofy rap verses. It’s the musical equivalent to a free margarita. Mmm.”
Nashville Nights

“As an artist who believes a remix should maintain the heart of the original and that artists should be careful not to consider sampling to be the same as remixing he stays true to his beliefs.”
Salacious Sound

“Now as for Mercurius FM… well he did a damn good remix of one of her tracks that we played on our radio show here in NZ.”
NerdyFrames for Dani Deahl

“While everyone in the electronic game has tripped over themselves to call what they do something else — chillwave, dancecore, bit-pop — Mercurius FM has stuck stridently to his roots, calling his May 2012 mix This Is Techno. Mercurius routinely updates his blog with gloriously old-school remixes of artists like Usher, The Beastie Boys, Prince, and his own analog compositions. Mercurius doesn’t position himself as better than anyone else, and that’s the glory of it all: He simply doesn’t have to.”
Phoenix New Times

“It isn’t fair to call Mercurius FM a “retro artist,” but there is a definite ‘old school’ tone to his work. His 2007 remix of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing” augmented the sexy vibe of the original song with squiggly synths and brisk tempos, and established a steady stream of hype for the DJ. Mercurius FM hasn’t let up, either. He releases exclusive mixes via his Facebook page, and his May Mix 2011 demonstrates the same French house-on-speed groove that is sure to be on display on Saturday, where Mercurius FM will take the stage spinning alongside LCD Soundsystem favorite One Man Party.”
Phoenix New Times

“If any one is serious about remixing, it’s Mercurius FM.”
Hipster Runoff

“We don’t have much to add, but to insist on the quality of this EP, … it smells the big fat vintage keyboard.”
