DJ UmbFox 'The Forbidden Tarraxo: Fodencia' Mixtape

Download 'The Forbidden Tarraxo: Fodencia' mixtape by DJ UmbFox, focusing on a slowed-down subgenre banned in Portuguese clubs.


'Fodencia' is an under-the-radar subgenre of tarraxo that's forbidden in Portuguese clubs. There's very little online about the genre, but with last year's burst of zouk bass and its accompanying tarraxinha/tarraxo revival, fodencia has started to be gathered up by those closely plugged to the scene.

In The Forbidden Tarraxo — Fodencia mixtape, co-presented here alongside the tireless global bass heads at Generation Bass, DJ UmbFox delivers a 43-minute mix on this obscure new sound. Get a little more info on fodencia below, courtesy of DJ Umb, and read more about it on Generation Bass to find out when it was first developed and learn more about its producers.

If you play this style of music in Portugal, you're not going to get any bookings in any of the clubs cause it is FORBIDDEN due to its highly charged and very raunchy nature. As it is forbidden in the clubs, you will usually only hear it played (mainly by younger Afro-Portuguese kids) at private ghetto parties. Basically "fodencia" means “fuckery.” Foda = "fuck.” If you slow down to 90 BPM a kuduro beat in a ghetto style you get fodencia. It differs from Tarraxo in that Tarraxo is a slowed down Kuduro beat in a regular style.

A Sci-Fi Film About an Otherworldly, Coltan-Rich Village In Burundi By Saul Williams Is In The Works

We catch up with the artist, poet and filmmaker to get the scoop on his film in development, 'Neptune Frost.'

MartyrLoserKing is Saul Williams' overarching multimedia project that he began 5 years ago, consisting of a graphic novel, three albums and a musical.

The musical arm of the project—Neptune Frost—has been in development, where Williams shot the trailer in Rwanda and launched a Kickstarter to raise funds to begin production of the full-length film, which he hopes to begin in 2019.

Neptune Frost is set in a Burundian village made of recycled computer parts. This village is also home to what the synopsis calls, "the world's most subversive hacking collective." The sci-fi film tells the love story between an intersex runaway and a coltan miner.

The plot continues:

While Western intelligence looks to the usual suspects, a Dogon avatar whispers through a dream to reveal the coded mysteries of Sirius and the stars to an escaped coltan miner and an intersex runaway seeking refuge from a binary norm, revealing her divine circuitry as the eye of the storm. When their connection sparks the MartyrLoserKing is born.

MartyrLoserKing, the elusive African hacker whose team of "losers" and outcasts ignite the imagination of the world's most "connected" generation through deep space, deep web penetration. A virtual hero for a world caught in perpetual analogue exploitation. Neptune Frost is the MartyrLoserKing.

Watch the trailer below.
