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.

One day after the third or fourth disc, the DPD crew were riding around somewhere. I was sitting in the back, leaned forward and asked, 'hey, you guys think you could do a theme about large non-existent objects? What about imaginary made-up creatures?', pretty much to no avail. I really pushed, but it wasn’t happening. I so wanted to play this song for these guys. I mean, it's great, but it's not so awesome that you call your friend up and go, hey dude, this song is amazing, listen to it. They’d think you're a freak. But put into the close confines of a musical based animal related theme compilation CD, and this shines like the gem it is. Take that fuzz guitar!

Seriously, this song could go on another 4 minutes and I think it would only get better.
