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:

How Will I Laugh Tomorrow...
by: Suicidal Tendencies
from: How Will I Laugh Tomorrow...

Picked By: diamond
For: DPD: 044 - Title Tracks

When this album was released, it was right in the middle of the of the "crossover" controversy. Punk bands were getting better at playing their instruments and adding more of a metal sound into their mix, DRI and ST were two of the bands that much debate was centered around. While everybody was busy with their scholarly arguments and calling people sellouts, they forgot to listen to this album. It is absolutely brilliant, Mike Muir's song writing wasn't that fun punk rock anymore, he grew up a bit and so did his writing. I really love this song, I used to blare it all the time when I was depressed about girls.
