Funktronica is a musical genre derived from the fusion of electronica and funk, although many funktronica artists also insert jazz, soul and contemporary R&B 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, Australia and Canada, although some UK singers who contributed to the synthpop 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.
According to Billboard, Particle is a "funktronica" band.
