Over six years in the making, "Soul Radio" is an ambitious representation of the artistry of Marina P, expanding into multiple genres while keeping its roots in rocksteady, reggae, and ska.

Born in Italy to jazz loving parents, Marina P travelled to Paris to get involved in its music scene. Word reached Mungo's Hi Fi of this rising singer with a cool yet emotive tone, and the Scottish sound system and label reached across the Channel to voice her on their industrial strength Belly Ska riddim. The result was 2007's massive and enduring "Divorce à L'Italienne".

That track is present on Soul Radio, alongside an inspired rocksteady cover of Smashing Pumpkins' "Soma", plus "The Beat Goes SKA!" featuring Tippa Irie and Dennis Alcapone, an adaptation of Sonny and Cher's "And The Beat Goes On".
