phat_tony I listened to the full album again and again Divorce A L'Italianne jumped out at me again and made me realise this track was by far the better more original sound I liked, this album has been on display next to my 1210 since it arrived, the great cover photo reminds me to spin it up and roll it again every time, Marina's voice just lifts the day as Mungo's beat goes on! drawing me in to the full album. It's had pride of place for weeks now and will probably stay until puffers choice arrives. Favorite track: Divorce A l'Italianne.

Maria P and Mungo Hi Fi are a winning combination! I've been playing "Searching" like crazy. Such a well-produced and soulful album!
Favorite track: Searching.

aseviour Best reggae album I’ve heard for a long time. Beautifully created by Marina P, intelligent songs and unique vocals that make a nice left turn for reggae music while retaining the authentic sound of its original forms - and oh that sub by Mungo’s Hi Fi always makes my legs quiver! Whilst not all tracks are strictly reggae/Ska it fulfils the concept intended combining vintage ideas delivered hi-tech. Bought the vinyl for samples but streaming it constantly in my car - hope the speakers cope! Favorite track: Searching.

about

Mungo’s Hi Fi cement their long-standing connection with Italian-born, Paris-based singer Marina P, by releasing eagerly awaited concept album, Soul Radio. Over six years in the making, Soul Radio is an ambitious representation of the artistic fullness 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 HiFi 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, which was included on Mungo’s 2009
Sound System Champions LP.
That track - phatly remastered along with Troubles and Worries and Mama Was Right for full 2020 oomph - is present on Soul Radio; alongside an inspired rocksteady cover of Smashing Pumpkins’ Soma, plus ska smash, The Beat Goes Ska!, an adaptation of Sonny and Cher’s And The Beat Goes On.

Having worked up a sweat on the ska and rocksteady dancefloor, the album relaxes into a more chilled space, with the haunting Nice To Meet You and the serene Great Wave. These calming, secluded sonic spaces combine Mungo’s forward-thinking production with a retro 90s-meets-50s, triphop-in-a-jazz club nostalgia. Taken as a whole, Soul Radio celebrates Marina P’s depth and versatility as an artist. It’s also the perfect soundtrack to both the night before - and the morning after.
