Built around the myth of an unnamed, mysterious Hobart waiter (whose story is told in English and Italian lyrics), Malakai’s track, Shovel Chin, is brilliant not only in its use of Whitla’s eclectic array of styles and influences, but also in its tempered, dynamic execution.
Coupled with a second original, Get Up, and a diverse set of remixes from friends Mat Cant, 1 Fish Two Fish and Milt Mortez - Malakai’s Shovel Chin EP is a proud addition to Bossman’s modest catalogue.
