Mercan Dede (born Arkın Ilıcalı, 1966, Bursa, Turkey), also known as DJ Arkin Allen, is a Turkish composer, ney and bendir player, DJ and producer. He divides his time between Turkey, Europe and North America. He is a world music artist, playing a fusion of traditional acoustic Turkish and other oriental musics with electronic sounds

Created for dancers, these pieces have a wonderful Turkish elegance. Mercan Dede, who moved from Turkey to Canada, uses musicians from both countries to create his sound, which manages to be spacious and airy without ever floating away.

Mercan Dede's first album, SEYAHATNAME, for Istanbul-based Doublemoon bleds the genres seamlessly from the opener, "Gülname," which brings a jazzy double bass and violin to accompany Middle Eastern singing, flute and percussion. Semaname" leans more on the minimal side, with layered horns and drumming, while a didgeridoo creeps into the start of "Hayalname" before the track bursts into pure joy.

Same year Mercan Dede's album Seyahatname includes pieces composed for a dance theatre project, directed and choreographed by Beyhan Murphy for the Turkish State Modern Dance Troupe. Since releasing his first album in 1996, Mercan Dede has become a world-renowned artist with his unparalleled interpretations and contributions to Sufi/World music as well as his cutting edge musical projects.

Unfortunately, so many producers aim for the biggest audience possible, and so wind up producing something everyone can agree on, but few can really burn to. Not so with this one.

This album has an average beat per minute of 130 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 85/180 BPM). See its BPM profile at the bottom of the page. Tracklist Seyahatname.

Mercan Dede's first album, SEYAHATNAME, for Istanbul-based Doublemoon bleds the genres seamlessly from the opener, "Gülname," which brings a jazzy double bass and violin to accompany Middle Eastern singing, flute and percussion. "Semaname" leans more on the minimal side, with layered horns and drumming, while a didgeridoo creeps into the start of "Hayalname" before the track bursts into pure joy. The vocals return on "Sahname" with some breaks to ground them, while the traditional instrumentation take center stage on "Neyname." A touch of funk slinks onto the plucked strings of "Vefaname" and "Askname," with the latter taking on some acceleration halfway through. The layered vocals and percussion once again become the centerpiece of "Falname," and "Sirname" closes the album on a more ambient, drifting note, as a drone hums in the background. An intriguing listen.

Mercan Dede is a surprising young turkish producer/dj/musician who has achieved a great new form of fusion in world music. As with its concerts, the lineup on his records change a lot from one to one, mixing elements from all over eastern and western territories. The emphasis on production, superimposed textures and multiple layers of sound is especially remarkable on this record, along with superb intrumentals and fascinating rythms. To paraphrase again him with one of its favorite expressions : truly amazing!
