Milwaukee’s classiest hip-hop duo AUTOMatic, which is made up of emcee A.P.R.I.M.E. and producer Trellmatic, has just released a new music video for its buzzed about single "Higher," from the fantastic second album, "Transistor."

You can hear "Higher" in regular rotation on 88Nine Radio Milwaukee. The video was shot by Stranj Child alum Ku Mays.

You can now follow AUTOMatic on Twitter at @AUTOMaticMusic and they’ve started up a blog, too.
