Electro-Choc is an electro house radio station that appears in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City. It is hosted by legendary DJ François K. The second downloadable episode The Ballad of Gay Tony expands the station with a new DJ, Crookers, while Episodes from Liberty City does not include the François K program.

Electro-Choc is non-stop and plays no commercials or advertisements, much like MSX FM and Rise FM in Grand Theft Auto III. Electro-Choc can be heard playing in Niko's Algonquin Safehouse. Crookers is the DJ of Maisonette 9 and plays their setlist inside the club, though they are nowhere to be seen in-game.
