The Heptones’ “Heptones Gonna Fight” Featured In New @SnowFallFX Episode


Are you a fan of TV shows? What do you get into? For some, the FX series “Snowfall” is a must-see TV show. With a story set around the beginning of the “Crack Epidemic” in 1980s LA, it has been hailed as one of the best crime dramas out. On episode 6 in season 4 of the series, a familiar Jamaican hit can heard, and it comes from the iconic, The Heptones!

During a scene featuring “Snowfall” character Khadijah, The Heptones’ 1968 release “Heptones Gonna Fight” can be heard throughout. Produced by “Sir CoxsoneDodd for Studio One, the track was featured on the group’s “On Top” album. It has been sampled by Garnett Silk, Shy FX, and former member Leroy Sibbles. It would seem like an injustice if you have a Film or TV Show and not have some Jamaican music as the soundtrack. “Snowfall” can be seen weekly on FX on Cable, or on Hulu.

.@MainlyMali x @MeLoXTRA’s “Hoity Toity” Featured In @GhostStarz Episode 8!


Power Book II: Ghost has been doing well since its debut earlier this year. With members from the original Power series making moves along with new characters, the action and drama have not pushed viewers away. Along with the storyline comes some great music. Earlier this year we highlighted that Lady Saw’sStrip Tease” was featured in the debut episode, and today, New York based artist Alex Mali makes an appearance through song in the 8th episode with her MeLo-X featured track, “Hoity Toity“.

Produced by Ninease and released in 2017, is a feel good track that captured some Island vibes, was a great fit for the summertime, and was made for the bad gyal dem! We had the pleasure of featuring its official music video that you can see here. The track was featured during a scene between Tariq and Effie (played by Michael Rainy Jr. and Alix Lapri respectively) as they handled some business (and pleasure) together. Are you familiar with Alex Mali? Check out some of her work here.
