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 Only Moment We Were Alone
by: Explosions In The Sky
from: Peel Session #2 - Feb.11, 2004

Picked By: darpino
For: DPD: 058 - John, Jhon, Johnny

Okay, so Peel Sessions are cool for many reasons, the one I think is the coolest is that the guy gave no name bands a chance to do whatever they wanted during their sessions and get major exposure no matter how weird or uncommercial they might be. So in choosing picks for this theme I wanted to find one great un-radio like track.

Playing a 10 minute rock song on the radio is unheard of. Especially when nobody knows who the fuck you are. Well, these guys flew all the way from Texas to cut a Peel Session and they not only cut 1 ten minute track, they cut 3! I can just imagine being an uninformed listener tuning in. Just a 30 minute wall of glorious guitar floating over the English countryside like it's coming straight from the Heavens.
