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.

There's a special place in my heart for 60's Soundtracks, Lounge and Exotica. I have a fairly decent collection of it. Lately there's been a hipster revival of that scene which I'm not really a part of socially. But a movement like that does make a lot of lost music available again. This little gem was rediscovered by the DJ's at the Eighteenth Street Lounge. Armando Trovajoli was a great Italian B-Movie soundtrack composer in the 60's. I love this track because the vocalist is amazing and her perfect annunciation is so damn sexy. Picture, girls in 60's micro-bikini's serving up pitchers of vodka-spiked lemonade on the mediterranean coast, after you've defeated a mad scientist and saved the world from his deadly Sexadelic Groove Ray.
