"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 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.
In Animal Crossing
In Animal Crossing, "DJ K.K." is played in the houses of Bitty and Chief. In Doubutsu no Mori e+, it is also played in Ketchup's house, and the aircheck of the song's live performance can be received from Bitty, Chief, Ketchup, Merry, Snooty, and Tiara at maximum friendship.
In Doubutsu no Mori and Doubutsu no Mori+, the live version of "DJ K.K." is different from Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+; the guitar riffs K.K. plays at the beginning of the song are altered, 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."
