Conkarah teams with Canadian South Asian recording artist and producer Roach Killa for a new party-starter single and music video “Switch (Fatty Fatty) –REMIX,” from the forthcoming debut EP Destination Unknown (BMG), available everywhere November 12 .
“Switch (Fatty Fatty) –REMIX,” co-written by Conkarah and produced by Roach Killa, is a feel- good blend of South Asian and Caribbean-flare, combined with a dance-inducing and infectious track that will force you out of your seat. The new release is accompanied by a high-energy music video that celebrates the uniqueness of both cultures, directed by U.K. director Reece Selvadorai for Grade A Productions.
Of “Switch (Fatty Fatty) –REMIX,” Conkarah says, “It was great working with Roach Killa. I love the energy and flavor he has added to this remix. I’m excited to share this new uplifting track with the world at a time when unity and positive vibrations is what we need most.”
Roach Kill adds, “When management came to me with the opportunity to do an official remix of ‘Everybody Switch,’ I wanted to deliver something fresh and unique with a mix of Dancehall and my South Asian roots. I wanted to create an East meets West sound because music has no language. It’s a feeling with positive vibes.”
Over the summer, Conkarah released a flavourful track and music video for “Papaya (Sick Wit It Crew Mix).” The release was the follow up single to the 2x Diamond-certified global hit “Banana,” featuring GRAMMY® award-winning reggae singer/producer Shaggy—which has now surpassed over 2 billion global streams to date, the first Jamaican artist to accomplish this milestone in a short release period.
