"K.K. Bashment" is a K.K. Slider song in Animal Crossing: New Horizons introduced in the 2.0 Free Update. Bashment is another name for the dancehall genre, which originated in Jamaica in the late 1970s as an evolution of more traditional reggae, using electronic instrumentation and loops. The aircheck is based more upon dancehall pop, which combines the established dancehall sound with more mainstream western pop sensibilities. Among other elements, the aircheck prominently features clave, bass drum, and handclap sounds from a Roland TR-808, a drum machine commonly used in popular music during the late 2010s (though unlike typical use of a TR-808, the bass drum's decay is set low).

Album cover[edit]

The album cover for "K.K. Bashment" features K.K. Slider sitting on a gray armchair dressed in casual clothing. K.K. is seen wearing black bottom-rimmed glasses, a bright yellow-green hoodie, and light gray sneakers. K.K. sits with his head facing to the right of the cover, blankly staring into the distance, and a slight gray shadow is cast behind him. The background has a very faint gradient starting with a darker gray at the bottom and ending with a light gray at the top. The aquamarine words "K.K. Bashment" are depicted in partial cursive, centered slightly above K.K.'s head.
