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 (facebook.com/mercuriusfm), and his May Mix 2011 demonstrates the same French house-on-speed groove that is sure to be on display on Saturday, June 11, at Brick, 55 North Third Street, where Mercurius FM will take the stage as part of the Faux Show Summer Pre-Party, spinning alongside LCD Soundsystem favorite One Man Party (Steve Slingeneyer of Soulwax) and DJ Jared Alan. Tickets are $6 and the electro-jams start at 10 p.m.
