KK Setlist - An Aborted Animal Crossing Project

First off, note to mods, I have DJP's permission to have this thread posted in this forum. I fully understand it's only temporary and will eventually be moved, but he gave the ok to have it here for now.


I'm sure many of you know that for well over a year I've been working on an Animal Crossing project. I had a good number of tracks, people I knew I could count on to come through last minute once I had a set deadline and a potential ace up my sleeve in the case of a massive 30+ minute medley. Hopes were high, progress was swift. Things were on track for a Christmas 2008 release.

Then I hit a snag. That medley.

The man working on it was to have worked on it all last summer for a fall deadline and a Christmas release. It wasn't going to happen, so I figured I would wait until spring 09 for a release. That got bumped as well. I finally asked what kind of time frame he would have needed as the project was very dependent on his track. He said he could have it finished over the summer... almost a full year from the original goal. I figured, "Sure, why not" and delayed the project to Christmas 09, a full year of a delay.
Months passed and the song showed very little progress. I understand he's a busy person and the company he is with takes up a lot of his time, but I was hoping for a little bit more.
Fast forward to today. I ask him the status and if there's any chance it'll be done any time soon. The answer was that it wasn't done, he doesn't have his guitar anymore, it would be months more until it was ready.

I made the decision to end it.

KK Setlist: An Animal Crossing Remix Project was going to be my ode to Animal Crossing. What started out as just KK Slider cover songs was expanded into a full Animal Crossing tribute spanning the different games and themes. I had high hopes that I'd be able to pull off what I wanted to do with the soundtrack. I was pretty close, but that one track was the killer for me.
What I am releasing is a 34 track collection of many finished tracks and some WIPs of tracks that never made it. 22 tracks are complete and ready to go and feature artists such as Diggi Dis, Mustin, Mazedude, OA, posu yan, Sixto and what may be known as Benedikt "Zeratul" Terhechte's final song as he told me he no longer plans to make music. The final project would've included other songs that dont' even have WIP representations because they were artists that didn't start yet. They were the guys who would usually come through last minute and without a solid deadline, there was no reason to rush them to start. 12 WIP tracks are also included. Some are near finished, some are rough demos and some are just sketches.

None of the files have been properly tagged and the WIP files aren't even properly named. There is no track order. And no, there is no album art (I know some of you are hardcore about having album art). I also do not plan on releasing any of the WAV files.
What you get is 1 hour and 53 minutes of music that people worked very hard on for a project that will never see the light of day.
At the urging of some friends and some of the remixers, I've made all the finished tracks and some select WIPs available in a bittorrent that you can download, check out and hopefully enjoy.

Torrent is available at: http://www.legittorrents.info/index....1f4203cd573872

If you are interested in helping seed, contact me on AIM and I will get you a RAR file so you can help seed. Do not ask if you don't intend to help seed. I've got a small handful of seeders on board right now, but speeds may be slow, so please be patient.

Tracks are as follows:

Benedikt Terhechte-Kristina
Crazy Crakaz-7am (feat. Chico Ray) (EXPLICIT LYRICS)
DCT-7am (Instrumental)
Diggi Dis-Camrade
FFmusic Dj-KKmusic Dj
FFmusic Dj-KKmusic Dj (alt)

Sixto Sounds-Acetone
Sixto Sounds-Rockin the Crossing

I thank all the remixers who made music for this project and I apologize that you've all waited so long just to have it end without an official release. Enjoy the music guys.

EDIT: Courtesy of KyleJCrb, here is a direct download rar file of all songs, tagged and numbered as he saw fit with album art included. http://kngi.org/mirrors/KKSetlist-Ab...MixProject.rar

This just made my day that much more depressing...JoeCam, when I messaged you the other day my intent was to see how things were going with this but I didn't want to be a bother.

It is good to see that so much work did go into this and that it was not in vein, but it pains me to see so much of "what it could have been". I'm sorry, I know I'm saying how you feel about it too, but just letting you know that it hurts here too, brotha.

Rocking that crossing, indeed.

A bit of damage control wouldn't hurt, would it? Like, at least tagging the files and making it a subpar release instead of a non-release release.

Oh well, music is still music.

I'd rather share the unfinished project in the state it's in than try to toss together a subpar "official" release. That's what OLR is for. Enjoy it for what it is, not for what it isn't.

Well, this is damn bittersweet. I was looking forward to a proper release of this at some time, since I'm a HUGE Animal Crossing fan and would have liked to see this soundtrack done some proper justice. Still, this many Animal Crossing songs at once is a pretty great consolation prize, even if many of them are unfinished

I appreciate the work you and all the contributing artists put into this, and I'm sure there'll be plenty of awesome songs for me to listen to when I get home from school that'll make this sad news a lot easier to swallow.

Why didn't you just officially release this with less tracks or something? You could've just said "right, project done now" taken all the finished tracks- pulled together some artwork and done a mini-project release. It's a shame, I was looking forward to this, still, does mean I can go download it all now!
Sorry to hear about it.

Proto, think of this as your album release then. You're still getting all the songs that are finished (and a few that aren't). I don't do album artwork either way (Bound Together never had artwork)

Xenon, <3
