    Disconnected is an album by the German IDM group Funkstörung. It was released on March 29, 2004, and was the first album of the duo to feature real pop songs with singing vocals. The CD's jewel case was packed in a partly translucent sleeve, with the inlay consisting of 10 loose cards designed by various design bureaus. Two singles were released, both double A-sides: Disconnected/Fat Camp Feva and Moon Addicted/Chopping Heads. The former single had additional remixes of the two songs, while the latter added two unreleased bonus tracks, "Basic PPO Blues" and "Generation Fat". All songs from the album plus the bonus tracks from the singles were included in the DVD/book combination Isolated. Triple Media.
