I've heard a snippet of the Switch remix on the BBC's website. What's heard on the podcast is not that mix. So by process of elimination, I'd say it is the extended mix. But I presume that was not the song in its entirety. The way it's structured leads me to believe the DJ did not play the record straight through and did some editing or cutting up. Someone was selling a copy of the vinyl single on Discogs for $268 but it's no longer on there. I love Chaka and want that record but I ain't got it like that.

I doubt if there is a new album on the way. She has had a couple of single releases over the past few years with a promise of an album to follow that have never surfaced. Never trust an album release from C.K. until you see it for pre-order. smile

yeah,I notice that,these days,she prefers to release a single every few years...but no album to follow.I'd love a new album from her.

Switch/Dave Taylor is a great producer, he was 1/2 of Major Lazer with Diplo for their first album. This is an interesting pair. I loooove his tunes "Gotta Get Down" and "A Bit Patchy"

Wasn't familiar with his name but have heard some of his writing and production work for others. Actually, when I saw the Twitter posting for "Like Sugar" I immediately thought it was a collaboration with the '70s r&b band Switch. grandpa Checking out the Major Lazer album now. Is "Gotta Get Down" a Switch or Major Lazer song? I can't find it anywhere.

Gotta Get UP LOL!! I bet you gotta get down too. The tune is by Switch/Taylor as Solid Groove with his co-hort DJ/producer Sinden. Solid Groove was how I was introduced to Mr. Taylor prior to his Switch days. From what I understand he recorded under other aliases too.

.

Here's one of my fave Mary J. Blige remixes by Mr. Taylor as "A. Brucker" with Sinden:

Switch & Sinden released a DJ mix for the fabric series as well:

OK...I get this is geared toward the clubs and dance radio. We've gotten a main version, an extended version, and a remix. I'm very familiar with and am a fan of music that emphasizes groove and atmosphere over all else. But the main version itself feels like a remix/dub/edit of a more fleshed out, expansive musical piece? Like I'm waiting for a middle section and ending that never comes. The remix has some vocalizing that's omitted from the other versions which makes me believe there's more to this song than what we've been given. I like it. But I'm so confused.

Question: is there a "regular" version of this song? I mean a version that is NOT a remix?

I wanna crawl into that groove and hang out for like twenty minutes, seriously. I was hoping for some guitar in there but I'm loving what I am hearing. This is a headphones track for sure.

Switch's remix is great too, Googling taught me that MJ Cole played this remix on BBC radio which I can totally see as the remix is right up his alley. This is a funk crossover bid for EDM heads and I loves it.

Is Island doing anything to promote this song? If not, what's the point of going back to a "major" label?

Its available now all three streaming.

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

Chaka mentioned last year that her next album will contain a lot of Prince related tracks.

I hope this is true.

Reminds me of an amped up, modern version of "Heartbeat" by Taana Gardner and I LIKE that BASS up in my FACE! I'm hopin' it's a HIT and that there actually IS an album 2 follow! I'd also like 2 see her get it on with Flyte Tyme again! <3

Hungry? Just look in the mirror and get fed up.

yeah,it would be cool if Jam and Lewis produced the album.I wonder what the album will be like.This song hints that she is moving in a dance music direction.

Much better than "I Love Myself" and "It's Not Over" but still not classic Chaka.
