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.

Interview

This Compilation Shines a Light On East African Underground Music

We talk to a few of the artists featured on the Music For the Eagles compilation from Uganda's Nyege Nyege.

Nyege Nyege, a label in Kampala, Uganda is channelling the confidence brimming over a whole continent. Africa is no longer the future. For dance music, its time is right now.

Music For the Eagles is a compilation released in conjunction with Soundcloud to showcase the best new acts that East Africa has to offer outside the mainstream. A new wave of artists firmly blasting non-conformist energy for you to spasm to. Music that takes you places. Otim Alpha's high BPM wedding frenzy of incessant rasping vocals accompanied by feverous violin will have you clawing the walls to oblivion. Anti Vairas' dancehall from a battleship with super galactic intentions doesn't even break a sweat as it ruins you. FLO's beautiful sirens call, is a skittish and detuned nursery rhyme that hints at a yearning for love but reveals something far more unnerving. Ecko Bazz's tough spiralling vocal over sub-bass and devil trap energy is an anthem that can only be bewailed. And Kidane Fighter's tune is more trance-like prayer. These are only some of the highlights for you to shake it out to.

We got to chat with a few of the artists featured on the Music For the Eagles compilation as they took a break from the studio below.
