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

Interview: Wavy The Creator Is Ready to See You Now

The multidisciplinary Nigerian-American artist on tapping into all her creative outlets, creating interesting things, releasing a new single and life during quarantine.

A trip canceled, plans interrupted, projects stalled. It is six months now since Wavy the Creator has had to make a stop at an undisclosed location to go into quarantine and get away from the eye of the pandemic.

The professional recording artist, photographer, writer, fashion artist, designer, and evolving creative has been spending all of this time in a house occupied by other creatives. This situation is ideal. At least for an artist like Wavy who is always in a rapid motion of creating and bringing interesting things to life. The energy around the house is robust enough to tap from and infuse into any of her numerous creative outlets. Sometimes, they also inspire trips into new creative territories. Most recently, for Wavy, are self-taught lessons on a bass guitar.

Wavy's days in this house are not without a pattern, of course. But some of the rituals and personal rules she drew up for herself, like many of us did for internal direction, at the beginning of the pandemic have been rewritten, adjusted, and sometimes ditched altogether. Some days start early and end late. Some find her at her sewing machine fixing up thrift clothes to fit her taste, a skill she picked up to earn extra cash while in college, others find her hard at work in the studio, writing or recording music.
