Welcome to DPD!

The DPD Project is a thematic mix-CD project created by music geeks and best friends Chris Diamond, Chris Prokop, and Michael Darpino.

Each CD in the project has a theme that ties the songs on it together. For every theme we each pick five songs that we feel best represent it. The collected fifteen songs are then mixed together in alternating order based on our last names. The songs that end up on DPD are meant to be the very best songs for their particular theme.

We write liner notes for each song to explain why we picked it for that theme. The project has grown into a sort of musical memoir over the years since music has been and still is such a huge part of our lives.

Random DPD Pick:

by: Mazzy Star
from: Among My Swan

Picked By: diamond
For: DPD: 071 - Infidelity

I say this one is open for interpretation, but I'm 99% positive that I'm the one who has it right. It's from the point of view of Hope Sandoval who's friend is having an affair with her mate/husband/boyfriend and Hope knows the whole thing is going down, but doesn't say anything because she just wants to be there when her "friend" finds out that he's done the same thing to her. I've noticed something over the years, Mazzy Star is essentially a country band, a brooding country band with well-written, mostly-ambiguous lyrics and a lot of effects pedals. For the record, I would never cheat on Hope Sandoval.
