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:

NYC Ghosts and Flowers
by: Sonic Youth
from: NYC Ghosts and Flowers

Picked By: diamond
For: DPD: 014 - Geographic Locations

Once again Sonic Youth makes the final cut. Does that say more about us or more about how they rule the fucking planet? This is a really excellent song from an equally excellent record, this band has been doing it so well for so long it's amazing; sure they've had a couple stinkers in there, but their batting average is far better than the Rolling Stones or The Jesus and Mary Chain. (I had to throw that one in) Sure they'll have their detractors, people who spew garbage like, "I was listening to these guys back in the day and they sold out, blah blah blah blah." Just checking my book here and their last compromise came... uh... never.
On to my point here. New York's State bird is the Bluebird, their flower is the Rose and I think you can see where I'm going with this; the State band should be Sonic Youth.
