Colectiva take aim at feminist stereotypes and the patriarchy on video for anthemic Latin jazz party-starter

Rebel Latin jazz ensemble Colectiva to release video for anti-patriarchy single that challenges and subverts perceptions of ‘femininity’; London launch event on December 11

Colectiva are on a mission. After releasing their debut single in 2021, the collective have emerged as one of London’s most exciting new jazz ensembles. Affectionately dubbing their style jazz-tropicaliente they play a stew of Afro-Latin rhythms inspired by salsa and jazz big bands of the 50s through to the 70s. With a DIY spirit and fluid formation – their arsenal of women instrumentalists can range from a five to an eight-piece band and beyond – they are passionate about community and representation. This much is clear on their latest single, “How Do You Like Your Ladies?”, an anthemic party-starter embodying female rage. Channelling their frustration at patriarchy and gender-based violence, they deliver a three-minute instrumental, rich in Afro-Latin rhythms, fiery horn motifs, salsa influences and jazz-inflected breaks.

Hear Young Dolph’s New Single “Old Ways,”

Young Dolph’s boisterous lyricism helped him build a Paper Route Empire and change the face of hip-hop. On the newly-released song “Old Ways,” released today by Dolph’s estate and PRE, the artist displays the commanding delivery and precise punchlines that made him an icon. Steamrolling a sparkling beat from his frequent collaborator BandPlay, using a sample from “Darlin Darlin Baby” by The O’Jays, Dolph emphatically proves that the money he’s made didn’t change his dedication to the hustle or his taste in music: “She think that I’m still stuck in my old ways/God damn I love the trap, I miss the old days/Ride around in the Bonneville with my throwaway/Now I make millions, I might just listen to the O’Jays.” Effortlessly quotable and impossibly hard, “Old Ways” is a sterling addition to Dolph’s formidable discography.
