dpd project [Full List of Discs] [FAQ] [Find A Song or Band] [Message Board]      

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:

Ostia (The Death of Pasolini)
by: Coil
from: Live Four

Picked By: prokop
For: DPD: 058 - John, Jhon, Johnny

First on the song. Jhon Balance’s vocals were flat out awesome. He had the perfectly gripping voice, extremely rich and very expressive. An incredible companion to the music that helped drive the emotional connection with so much of Coils work.

Additionally, Jhon Balances outspoken nod to the controversial Pasolini is recognition of another incredible artist, willing to speak out and not hold back his art, afraid of public opinion. To the point it got Pasolini murdered. Few people possess the will to speak their mind with such conviction at all, and even fewer have the intelligence and artistic talent to express themselves so meaningfully. I’m thankful that for the most part, artists aren’t murdered for their beliefs or pushing the public out of its comfort level. Of course, fewer and fewer artists have that same passion these days, especially ones with any real talent. Here’s to three that did, from three that couldn’t thank them enough.
