Deuce Ellis teams up with Camo Monk for "MEM2" [Video]

Brooklyn raised MC/producer Deuce Ellis and his longtime collaborator Camo Monk first popped up on our radar with their experimental jazz instrumental project. Now, Ellis is back in the field with a new single "MEM2" which sees him working with Camo Monk on co-production duties. The track is built on a gritty and somewhat dusty soundscape made up of dark keys and a distorted bass-like synth. It's quite off-kilter and the sparse drums also leave a lot of room for Ellis's carefree and laidback flow.

The visuals were directed by Deuce Ellis himself with the help of Diggidy-Diggz. Keeping to the theme and style of the song itself, the visuals we see is colorful and grainy at the same time. The use of different performance shots, quick-cut scenes sure capture Ellis' calm demeanor but majorly the watercolor/retro VHS effect makes it stand out.  "MEM2" is taken from Deuce Ellis's newest LP Midnight Ouroboros, a 10 track self-produced project featuring underground stalwarts like Estee Nack, Hus Kingpin, G4Jag, Napoleon Da Legend, and more. He also worked with Camo Monk and CeeGee behind the boards on this one.
