Austrian hip-hop producer Flip just released his album "Reflections" on February 17th and it's really good. The album features guest appearances from AG (of DITC), EDO. G, Killah Priest, Guilty Simpson, Kev Brown, LMNO, Tragic Allies and many others with all production (and some of the scratching as well) being handled by Flip himself. I'm not quite sure what my favorite track is just yet, but "Dreaming" with AG is definitely getting a lot of play and has been since the video dropped. Anyways, make sure you peep the album stream below then head on over iTunes and cop the full album if you are feelin' it.
Hot on the heels of his last single "I Just Don't", New York veteran emcee J-Live returns with the third single from his upcoming album "His Own Self", which is set to drop on March 17, 2015 and is currently available for preorder over on his Bandcamp site. The song is called "Red & The Kid" and it's a banger, with J-Live rapping about how he learned to DJ as well as about the DJ's that inspired him over an old school instrumental that has my head nodding like crazy. "His Own Self" is shaping up to be crazy. Peep the single below.
Hip-hop production crew The Jazz Jousters return with the latest entry in their "Locations" compilation series, this time with all of the instrumentals using German jazz samples.

After peeping the project, make sure to check out their Italy, Japan and Brazil tribute albums as well, all of which dropped last year and are just as nice as this entry. Next up: Nigeria.
Hip-hop trio Injury Reserve (consisting of emcees Ritchie with a T and Stepa J Groggs along with producer Parker Corey) are back yet again, this time with some visuals for their track "Whatever Dude".
