- Part of the Rottel (Rotterdam Techno) series with rottel-da-sun.
- The video for Rottel-the-Mercury features fishermen using Tran and giant steaks as bait.
- This is one of the few videos with Tran in it that is not done by VJ GYO.
- The "Mercury" in the title is not a reference to the planet in the solar system, as in rottel-da-sun, but a reference to the toxic chemical mercury found in polluted fish.
Music Production Info
Thanks for always letting me work the way I want. And thanks for letting me come and go like this. When I wrote this song, I didn't so much deliberately construct it as go with the feeling "If I don't make it full of energy, it will boil over by itself". And man, is it energetic! (I like it better than pretentiously intelligent music.) I'm still trying to build up my energy again, so let me do another song (but give me a break first!).

It's a mad video.
Leave Tran hanging as much as you'd like.
It was fun to come up with it while thinking about playing around the surroundings at work ... *g*
