Malachai are a two-piece band from Bristol, England. They were renamed Malachai in 2010 from the previous spelling
Malakai after the band discovered that the name Malikai was already used by an American rap artist. The members of the band are Gee Ealey (vocals) and
DJ Scott Hendy (music). Their sound is a mix of beats and samples, drawing on a wide range of influences from BBC Radiophonic-type experimentalism
through 'Golden Era' Hip-Hop to 1960s Psyche Pop.
Discovered by Geoff Barrow from the Bristol based band Portishead, Malachai (then as Malakai) released a limited edition 12" on Barrow's Invada
Records record label called Fading World. This track was used as the music to accompany the I Count: Stop Climate Chaos video that
first aired at the 2007 Glastonbury Festival. It was directed by Gerald McMorrow, whose film Franklyn also contained four Malachai tracks. In 2012
Snowflake provided the background ambience for the Lexus Walk the Walk All Weather Drive TV commercial.
Fading World was followed by their major label debut EP 1 on Island Records in September 2007. The lead track from EP 1, entitled The Battle, was BBC
Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe's Single of the Week for the week commencing 9 July 2007. The song was made available to buy digitally in July 2007. On 30
July 2007, The Guardian newspaper featured Malakai as their New band of the day.
The band were featured on the Lily Allen And Friends television programme when they were voted in to play the show out.
They released their debut album, Ugly Side Of Love, on Invada Records in February 2009. Malakai were the support for Doves UK tour from April to May
2009. They released Ugly Side of Love in North America and worldwide territories in early November.
The band, now billed as Malachai, is signed to Domino Records's Double Six label, and the album Ugly Side of Love was reissued in April 2010.
Their single Snowflake was featured on the soundtrack of FIFA 11.
Malachai's third and likely last album Beyond Ugly is set to be released in March 2014 and features guest performances by Geoff Barrow and
Kasabian's Sergio Pizzorno.
