From since-deleted Wikipedia article, mostly researched and written by Larry "Liontamer" Oji in 2005:

The Chrono Trigger Mixtape, Vol. #1 is a parody mixtape of 12 tracks featuring hip hop a capellas by mainstream hip hop artists set to music sampled and mixed from the SNES role-playing game Chrono Trigger, the soundtrack of which having originally been composed by Yasunori Mitsuda, Nobuo Uematsu and Noriko Matsueda.

Bed-ridden with the flu, Ali Haeri (of the duo with Stephen Ip, Compromised) chose to follow through with an in-joke among his friends of creating a stereotypical hip hop mixtape. The majority of the album was created in two days by Haeri, and showcased to friends on October 17, 2005, the day prior to its formal release.

After being shown off, the voice of fictional mixtape host "DJ Epoch," whose identity is currently only known by Compromised, was recorded and integrated into the tracks for a more authentic mixtape atmosphere. After adding DJ Epoch's MCing, the final mixtape was released at the album's website on October 18, 2005.

According to Haeri, the "joke" of the album "would be all the annoying flair of a hip-hop mixtape, including (but not limited to) an incredibly annoying host, yelling all over records with a ridiculous delay effect over his voice, terrible song selection, etc."

A second mixtape in Compromised's series was due sometime before 2007, but with Compromised gone AWOL as well as the website being closed, it seems the project was abandoned. The "DJ Epoch Outro" mentioned that Kirby Super Star would provide the instrumentals, though there had been no serious confirmation of the source.
