- This article is about about the song. For the pseudonym this character goes by, see K.K. Slider.
"DJ K.K." is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Doubutsu no Mori. It is inspired by the Eurobeat (a fast Hi-NRG style popular in Japan in the 1990s and 2000s) and Eurodance (a combination of hip-hop, house, and techno that became popular in Europe during the late 1980s and early 1990s) genres. Eurobeat and Eurodance songs were often played at dance clubs by DJs, hence the name.
The live version of the song is unusual in that it is the one of a few songs to have been changed between games; the guitar riffs K.K. plays at the beginning of the song are altered between Doubutsu no Mori and Animal Crossing, a change that has extended to every following game in the series. This appears to be out of legal concern, due to the affected riffs sounding similar to the synthesizer riffs heard throughout Dutch Eurodance group 2 Unlimited's 1991 song Get Ready for This.
"DJ KK" is also the pseudonym K.K. Slider goes by when performing as Club LOL's DJ Sunday-Friday evenings.
The album cover for "DJ K.K." depicts K.K. Slider on the left side, stylistically stretched and colored pink, and a smaller-sized Cookie in the lower-right corner in a workout dress. The background is pink-and-green checkered, in a wavy formation. The checkered background is covered in a uniform grid of encircled green K.K. Slider heads.
