The Global Bass Experience
By El Guero Unico

A new release by Principe Discos. It is DJ Nigga Fox’s 12″ release “O Meu Estilo’”(‘My Style’). The first time I encountered DJ Nigga Fox’s work was just after the little Zouk Bass fiasco began, you remember when Buraka Som Sistema’s MC shouted out “Zouk Bass” during their Boiler Room performance and everyone lost their mind. The good thing about that “genre” mishap was that it exposed a lot of us to the underground scene happening in Lisbon, Portugal. The music was actually Tarraxinha produced by these dope DJ’s and Principe Discos is a big proprietor with signed DJ’s producing this music.

Well even though there was a lot of silliness involved, the two greatest things that came out of Zouk Bass was the exposure given to the Tarraxihna/Tarraxo DJ’s and producers as well as the almost parody-like behavior of the blogs desperate to be on top of “new genres.” It was fun for me anyway, sure a little annoying at times but in the end it was more funny than anything else.

I encountered the work of DJ Nigga Fox along with several others who deserved much more exposure than they were getting before all this happened. The Angolan influenced music DJ Nigga Fox was responsible for were among some of my favorites. This new 12″ vinyl release is well deserved. It thoroughly encompasses the style of DJ Nigga Fox. I found myself having a lot of fun mixing his music in the past. So for the vinyl-only DJ’s along with the modern use-whatever-you-have DJ’s like myself, this album is for you. For the latter of course we’ll have to convert the tracks to a digital format but nothing still is sweeter than the sound of vinyl records.
