Milwaukee’s A.P.R.I.M.E. and Trellmatic (with JDL Rockwell), aka AUTOMatic, have been enjoying some well-deserved limelight for their newest release Art Imitates Life [Dope Folks Records]. Going back to the golden era of hip hop and taking cues from Stevie Wonder to A Tribe Called Quest, Art Imitates Life is inspiring and damn catchy. Miss the days of De La Soul? Miss no more because AUTOMatic has your ears covered. Click this to get in on the new album and check out their video below for the song “The Back Up” featuring Logic and Mike Carpenter, as well as local spots The Exclusive Co. record store and Four Seasons Skate Park. Like what you hear? Mark your calendars for this Tuesday, October 30th, as AUTOMatic takes over the WMSE airwaves for a live set on WMSE’s Local/Live at 8 p.m.
