Fantastic mix from K.K. Setlist -- look for that in the future, as we're working to collect all the songs and produce a few more and hopefully release it at OCR in a proper fashion. This is an incredible mix. The interesting thing about the K.K. music is that they've got "studio versions" of all of K.K.'s songs, labeled "Aircheck" versions. So if you're not a fan in particular of K.K.'s live performance, there's always the studio version to check out.

Really, my only gripe about this mix is that it is so short. However, the arrangement is concise and I don't feel it lingers too long on any particular movement. The production is extremely well-executed and clear, and the guitar sounds are nothing short of professional. Good work Diggi. :-)

I love Diggi Dis' work: No two remixes of his ever sound the same, yet he always manages to consistently bring the quality.

But, no mention that this thing is from Joe Cam's Animal Crossing remix project? No mention of the pun in the title? Are you slipping, Dave? :-P

Left beggin' for more. Particularly love the whistling integrated with the guitar.

I've been quietly slipping for years now... shhhh.

Yeah Frank didn't mention that in his submission email, and while I knew it in the back of my head, I forgot to mention that. That's what these review threads are for, fixing my gaffes :nicework:

Nice work! I loved Animal Crossing, and while I very few songs really stuck out to me (getting K.K.'s tracks was WAY more work than it should have been...), this mix does a good job of making K.K.'s beatbox style become samba-esque.

Awesome remix. Great guitars, and the piano that comes in at 1:25 is very tastefully done. One big gripe with it - why is it so short?

Wow, this remix was very very good. The KK beatbox is cool. Short mix but awesome! :)

Wow! I'm not even that familiar with Comrade KK and I still love this. I think if I'd had no clue what it was at all I'd still want to listen to it. <3

PS: I love KK's "singing!" T_T

I smiled, chuckled, and took a smoke listening to this. I love the zesty introduction that gives it that Spanish vibe to it with the light guitar element. The flow is a medium and very light on piano. What really got to me is the whistle that flowed with the rhythm (wild arms reference anyone ? xD).

10/10 A+ must listen.

Wow, this was amazingly good. Another gem from Diggi Dis =D.

Dude, this is awesome! This one's got this Andalusian flair :)

Love it as usual...but we're talking about Frank here, so that's to be expected. Keep it up, man!

For some reason, this reason this mix reminds me a lot of this mix. I don't know why.

But anyway the guitar work here is drop dead gorgeous, and the whole thing feels so mellow in a so sizzling hot it's cool kind of way.
This is an absolute must listen to and is by far my favorite (as of now) Animal Crossing mix on the site.

Also, just ending with K.K. Slider whistling is brilliant.

Pretty short, but sweet guitars. I do wish the whistling was a little louder but otherwise a nice job overall.

Have to say that the guitar sound e.g. around 0:40 just isn't my cup of tea.

Whistling and piano are dope, though.
