Electronic funk music on the radio

Electronic funk is a genre of electronic music that fuses the elements of funk, soul, and disco with electronic beats, synthesizers, and production techniques. It emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s, with artists such as George Clinton, Zapp, and Cameo pioneering the sound. The genre reached its peak in the 1990s with the rise of electronic dance music and the popularity of acid jazz, a genre that fused electronic music with jazz and funk.

Some of the most popular electronic funk artists include Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers, and Fatboy Slim, who have all had significant commercial success with their electronic funk-influenced music. Other notable artists include Jamiroquai, who fuses funk and soul with electronic beats and synthesizers, and The Crystal Method, who blends electronic music with elements of rock and funk.

There are several radio stations that specialize in electronic funk music, such as Funky Corner Radio, which plays a mix of funk, soul, and electronic music, and Funk Republic Radio, which focuses on funk and soul music with a contemporary electronic edge. Additionally, many mainstream electronic dance music radio stations will also play electronic funk tracks.
