Ray Elementary, the combination of Simeon Viltz (Primeridian) and producer Mulatto Patriot are back with some new visuals for the single “Once Again” featuring Pugs Atomz. The artistically appealing video was directed by Pugs Atomz and shot by Race Bannon (Primeridian) with Kenautis Smith.
Coming off the buzz from the first single/video “Hot Day,” the more recently released jazz infused “Once Again” captivates listeners with “chilled out and soulful funky vibes, chirping horns and classic laid-back flows.” And with live percussion from Chris Paquette this is an aurally stimulating and a visually appealing video.
Be sure to check out the commentary at the end as Simeon speaks on their role as mentors to many of the youth (now young adults making major waves in the music industry) and their responsibility to keep pushing the art forward as well as give back to the young coming up.”Once Again” is the latest release off the upcoming “Ray Elementary” self titled album.
Channeling the spirit of the days of Cold Chillin Records (Grand Daddy IU, G-Rap, Kane, Biz, Shan, Marley Marl, Master Ace, Juice Crew, etc) and the early phases of Golden Year Hip Hop with new rhyming styles enhanced EQ and live instrumentation, Ray Elementary (Simeon Viltz and Mulatto Patriot) team up with Pugs Atomz to bring “Once Again.” The song speaks to being triumphant in everything that we do no matter what the obstacles. This is the latest leak of the self titled “Ray Elementary” album coming soon.
As the murder rate skyrockets in Chicago and throughout the nation (worldwide), people are pouring out their heart and soul for our youth. This seems to be one of the worse moments in recent history where homicide is at an all time high. In the spirit of overcoming and hoping to bring a healing perspective into the musical landscape, The Viltzes (Simeon Viltz of Primeridian and Krystal Viltz) respond with the aptly titled “Stop the Killing” (No More Caution Tape). produced by Simeon Viltz.
