Funkstörung (German for "transmission interference", sometimes also spelt Funkstorung) is Christian de Luca (born 11 May 1974) and Michael Fakesch (born 8 March 1975), a duo of IDM musicians (producers) hailing from Rosenheim, Germany. They are known for rhythmically complex but melody driven music, similar to the late 1990s work of Autechre, although their latest work incorporates elements of hip hop as well as pop music. They also do a lot of remix work, their portfolio including top-level artists such as Jean Michel Jarre, Wu-Tang Clan and Björk. Two of the five Funkstörung albums are collection of remixes for other artists.

One strong point of Funkstörungs' releases has always been their cover art and design, often by The Designers Republic. This attention to graphic design was taken to its logical conclusion when they released Isolated. Triple Media. in 2004, a 160-page artbook and a DVD with graphics and music videos related to Disconnected. Both de Luca and Fakesch have released solo albums, most of them on their own Musik aus Strom label.
