This is the livestream service of Port of Spain broadcast station NFX (hence the "e"). A not-for-profit community station founded to showcase up-and-coming Trinidadian "Dee Jays" (electronic music arrangers) at home and abroad, eNFX offers some of the most fascinating Caribbean music you'll find anywhere. In the words of owner DJ Flexxx, on the station website:
We […] provide you with the best in Local, Caribbean & World music (Soca, Chutney, Reggae, Dancehall, Hip Hop, R&B, Alternative Rock, Techno, Reggaeton, Exclusive Remixes and more!).
Most of this music is strung together in continuous dance-mix format, and often "mashed up" (layered over riffs from other tracks, with surprisingly compatible results). Particularly compelling is the Indian pop, legacy of Trinidad's large South Asian population, and especially a local hybrid style mixing Desi beats with reggae and soca.

During local afternoon and evening, eNFX streams pre-recorded blocks hosted by individual dee jays, with every now and then a direct feed from the broadcast service. From local midnight to 1400 they stream automated music in all genres.

With advertising targeting the whole Trinidadian diaspora, including sponsors from as far afield as New York City, eNFX is a truly forward-looking business, making full use of new technology.

The station homepage offers four clickable stream loading files. Listeners can also enjoy the station on the Flash player embedded in each page of its website.

eNFX is a good station to have on while you exercise or work around the house. Or better yet, at a party. Patch in some serious subwoofers, and boot da bass.
