really nice guitar playing, and the once again, awesomeness for the KK beatboxing.

The mix itself is pretty short, but it says what it needs to and is well suited to repeat plays, so all good. There is a lot of great textural variety in such a small package, and overall the remix is really strong. Nice work, DD Slider.

Oh hell yes, this is tiiiiighhtt! It totally plays off of the great melodies from the original (*stares angrily at the AC haters) and really breathes a ton of new life into it, which is why I was so disappointed to see the Animal Crossing project fail - the source tunes, while they may sound unconventional, are full of great melodies like this one that can be adapted in so many ways.

Major props on the KK samples too, that's just awesome!

Just to put this out there again, this song is going to appear on the K.K. Setlist that is currently being revived and put together, hopefully to be released at OCR in the future.

It's a great interpretation of a lovely source, gotta love that K. K. Music.

Thoroughly enjoyed this mix. My only gripe is that it's so short! Perhaps with the revival, we can make it longer, yes? <--see what I did there?

Songs like this are why Diggi Dis is one of the best musicians in the scene. This dude can do it all.
Love that title too. :D

Ohhh yeah. It's good to hear that people 'get' Animal Crossing music. There's some really catchy, melodic jingles crammed into it, and that fact alone led me to jump through a lot of hoops just to collect all those KK songs. Pain in the ass, but worth it.
The best thing about this mix, besides the fact that it's got smoking production, is that it captures the Animal Crossing vibe whilst also ramping up the listenability. The use of the signature game assets make sure you don't forget the mix's humble origins, which I love. The whistling is a super, super nice touch that was handled in all the right ways and is eerily complementary to the excellent guitar work.
As far as emphasising the strength of melody, this mix pulls out all the stops and ensures everyone can enjoy what Animal Crossing has to offer. I've gotta admit, I prefer this version to the KK version now; its the best of both worlds. Although when KK's unique vocals burrow into your psyche, you're a fan for life.

This sounds like it would come right off a Santana CD, especially in the intro. Liking the whistle and piano work here and this is a spicy little ReMix that I can stand behind. A little short, but adds to the charm here.
