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:

The Art of Self-Defense
by: The Jesus Lizard
from: Liar

Picked By: darpino
For: DPD: 063 - 3.3^3

Listening instructions: play really loud.

Usually it's Dave Yow's vocals and Duane Denison's guitar that sell a Jesus Lizard song. But on this one I love the dead-on drum and bass. Dave Sims and Mac McNeilly are just on fire here. Not that Yow and Denison are slouching by any stretch of the imagination, in fact this is one of Denison's more industrial guitar riffs. But that merciless rhythm section just keeps building and building. When it really kicks in at the 50 second mark it's hypnotic, it's like strapping your head into a paint-can mixer. Fucking awesome.
