What music genre does "Let's Dance Boys" belong to exactly?

I'm having quite some trouble putting my finger on what genre this song actually is. Probably some kind of jazz  but I'm not all that sure which one.

I think the fundamental flaw here is that you're trying to categorize something from Bayonetta, a game which is "fucking ridiculous", according to reputable sources. 
It's catchy as hell, though.

It is an enjoyable occupation though.
edit platimun's site isn't helping

 1. A nice up-tempo beat.
2. To express the idea of femininity, I used “beautiful” instruments like pianos, electric pianos, organs, vibraphones, flutes, double bass, and a female chorus.

The piano stabs at the beginning are characteristic of 90's rave I think, and it's some kind of house, because of the beats.
Try deep, disco, funky, and/or soulful house.
Also sounds like jpoppy-ish.

@Rallier: I'd class it as "1970s Disco meets Funk meets Jazz with all three turned up to 11".
