Hey Steven!
I actually just want to write thank you.
My daugther is about three months now, and she listens to your covers very often.
If she gets upset I dance around with her while listening to Dusty Dunes, and if she needs to fall asleep I rock her to the sound of KK. Bossa.
This has been a ritual since she was about 2 weeks old, and I kid you not, it works like a charm.
I grew up with nintendo, and two of my favorite franchises are Earthbound and Animal Crossing. So to see my daugther react to the music from the games the way she does makes me truly happy. But non of it would have been possible if you hadnt made those covers.
So, from the bottom of my heart. Thank you

I would love to hear this with your vocoder KK slider for the entire or most of the song. It was my favorite part by far.

aivi & surasshu - K.K. Cruisin' Animal Crossing: K.K. Bossa 3 months ago   05:52

Liner Notes:
-- We love Totaka!
-- We worked on this remix in between projects for a year.
-- When we lived in separate countries, we played Animal Crossing: New Leaf together and went to K.K. Slider concerts on Saturdays. We requested "K.K. Cruisin'" every time.
-- We started this remix in an attempt to answer the question, "Why is K.K. Cruisin' so great?" After listening to it and studying it, we determined that, for us, the heart of the song was its groove. The same five chords repeat throughout the entire song (five extremely creative chords--Mr. Totaka is always a step ahead of us all), and it never changes in rhythm or energy level. We used that concept as the main inspiration for our arrangement, where instead of ramping up the energy for the chorus like we'd normally do, we pulled back and settled into a comfortable groove. Keeping "still" was a big exercise in confidence for both of us.
-- We named our remix after the road trips we'd take together down I-5, between San Francisco and LA. Those trips felt like mini-vacations for us (though we still worked on the road and in our hotel room) and making this song has been a mini-vacation for us, too.
