Random Beats Music is thrilled to release Hero Muzik Vol. II by K-Murdock, a hip hop tribute to the lovable cast of characters from Squaresoft’s beloved SNES-era RPG, Chrono Trigger. Over the course of 12 tracks, K-Murdock and friends give voice to all the key protagonists as well as other memorable characters including tracks dedicated to Spekkio, Lavos, and mysterious gurus, Belthasar and Gaspar. Hero Muzik Vol. II is available now from Bandcamp.
“This album was a true labor of love, taking over two years to complete,” reflects K-Murdock. “Personally, this has been the most rewarding project I’ve ever produced and engineered given my childhood affinity for the game and its’ memorable soundtrack. The underlying goal with Hero Muzik Vol. II was to showcase the breadth of amazing music and musicians featured.”

2. Timeline (Marle)
3. Big Brains (Lucca)

6. A Change of Scenery (Frog)

10. Remember it All (Lavos)
11. The Gurus of Meaning (Belthasar, The Guru of Reason)
12. Bring Crono Back (Gaspar, the Guru of Time)
Fans will appreciate hearing their favorite Chrono Trigger melodies slowed down, chopped up, and re-arranged, offering a new spin on Yasunori Mitsuda’s most popular compositions. The album contains several instant classics, including a catchy ode to Lucca called “Big Brains” and a touching narration from Magus and his younger self, Janus, as they describe the troubles of the Kingdom of Zeal from their unique perspectives and worry for the safety of their sister in “Schala & I.”
Hero Muzik Vol. II follows up the original Hero Muzik album, which was a tribute to Nobuo Uematsu’s soundtrack to Final Fantasy VI.
