"K.K. Technopop" is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Doubutsu no Mori. It is an upbeat and fairly catchy tune with active drums, a synthesizer, a popping melody, and a synth bass in the background. It is based on the technopop genre that flourished in Japan, America, and Europe the late 1970s to the mid-1980s. While the genre is quite diverse in sound, K.K. Technopop focuses more on the Japanese style from the late 1970s, popularized by bands such as Yellow Magic Orchestra.

Album cover[edit]

Album cover in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

The album cover for "K.K. Technopop" features a green 3D mesh of K.K. Slider's head against a dark background. It appears to be an homage to the albums Computer World and Electric Café by German technopop group, Kraftwerk, or The E.N.D. by Black Eyed Peas. "K.K." is written in light blue letters at the bottom-right corner of the album cover, resembling the font of a digital clock. In New Horizons, the font is slightly altered, with the letters spaced closer together. The background has been changed to a dark green, and a faded green record label is at the bottom-left corner as well.
