Hi, you say you have indentified switch wire so it's easy now?
Do this
1) All cpc or earths together
2) All reds or browns if new colours loop together
3) Neutrals blacks or blues if new colours to blue flex side of light
4) returnig switch wire black or blue if new colours to brown flex side of light.
Be safe and isolate circuit before you do any work.
