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.

For: DPD: 036 - My Life in Music (Prokop)

Back in the dorm room at A.U., our window overlooked the main street of campus. There was an Erasure concert there and people started lining up in the morning for it. Soon the line went right under our 5th story window. We decided to DJ to this captive audience out the windows. The six speakers got lined up, and the fun began. We started with some Die Warzau and other beat-heavy industrial, but then switched over to folk music and Negativland (The Potatoes disc to be precise). We soon got shut down, but it was fun while it lasted. All these Erasure fans being forced to listen to bad versions of “When the Saints Come Marching Home”.
