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.
