Funktronica (coined from "funk" + "electronica") is an underground subgenre of funk music characterized by the use of recent digital production equipment (like personal computers) in order to produce a sound similar in terms to its 1980s precursor. The name, coined in mid-2000s, derives from the fusion of electronica and funk, although many funktronica artists also insert jazz and soul music samples more often than before.
Funktronica diverged into a separate scene around 2003, while heavy influence from electroclash was felt in European nightclubs. Like its precursor, the genre has known much more prominence in the United States and Canada, although some UK singers who contributed to the electropop revival of the late 2000s, notably La Roux, maintain its low yet steady prominence worldwide.
The earliest influence to funktronica sound was the 1980s band Zapp.
