Kazumi Totaka (戸高 一生, Totaka Kazumi), born August 23, 1967, is a video game composer. Totaka has been the sound director for all mainline games in Animal Crossing series, as well as the composer for many of the tracks. He has composed various songs from other Nintendo games, and is known to hide a short melody known as "Totaka's Song" in games he has worked on. This is present in all Animal Crossing games as "K.K. Song".
The character K.K. Slider is a caricature of Totaka, and his full name Totakeke is derived from "Totaka K.", since family names are written first in Japan. While most of K.K.'s songs in the original games were composed by Toru Minegishi, Totaka rearranged them for the live performances.
