Tarkan Selections

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

The Turkish press is reporting that similar to its April 2007 article "50 reasons to love Turkey", weekly Turkish magazine Tempo has again included Tarkan in another compilation of Turkish successes.

The July issue of the magazine presents a list of "40 Miraculous Turks", in a tribute to mark the "miracle" wins of the Turkish national football team that took them to the semi-finals of Euro 2008.

Although the Turkish pop star is not featured on the cover, he was chosen for being one of Turkey's most successful "cultural exports".

Tarkan had made the cover of Tempo in March 2006, when the magazine had published a lengthy interview with the pop star on the eve of the release of his English language album Come Closer.

Tarkan Remixed by Top European DJ

Meanwhile, Turkish newspaper Hürriyet's magazine supplement Kelebek has printed an interview with top European DJ Tiësto, who claims to be currently working on a remixed version to one of Tarkan's tracks selected from his award-winning album Metamorfoz.

Having previously reported that Tarkan had met DJ Tiësto when in Istanbul last year for a show and of rumours of a remixed version of Metamorfoz, it seems that Tarkan's scheduled album release might also include a remix from the Dutch DJ, too.

In an interview with one of the world's most famous trance DJs on his planned return to Istanbul this July, he is quoted to have said that, "currently I am working on a remix to Tarkan's "Pare Pare" track. It's a special piece that should be released soon."
