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

Mercan Dede and Secret Tribe's splendid 2002 release Nar realizes this elegant marriage of old and new stunningly. Along with the groups' spellbinding performances, it is helping them build a worldwide following. 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. Both as Mercan Dede and his alter ego DJ Arkin Allen, he has performed at events as diverse as the Black & Blue 98 (a world-renowned Montreal circuit party attended by 15,000 people) and a concert of improvisations with on classical Turkish music at the Canadian Museum of Civilization. On Breath, the third release in the four part series that began with Nar (Fire) and continued with Su(Water), Mercan Dede infuses his listeners with the refreshing quality of air.

Mercan Dede is a Turkish musician based in Canada, and best known for his second career as a rave DJ and exponent of "spiritual clubbing", mixing the sufi traditional of the Middle East with western beats. He may have updated the hypnotic, trance-like styles of the dervishes in the past, but this is certainly not a dance album at heart.

A song from Mercan Dede's Nefes, Breath album(2006) Mercan Dede's Nefes album is listed position in WMCE (World Music Charts Europe). mercan dede nefes göksel baktagir yurdal tokcan huxi.
