Returning baring a gift from his unannounced, yet likely calculated hiatus, one of Pomona’s most celebrated and decorated producers Curtiss King releases his highly anticipated solo endeavor entitled Raging Waters. An album as grand as the roaring rapids, wild as rivers running over rigged mountain terrain, and crashing one’s mind with countless waves of audio meant to flood the streets and storm the shores, the once titled water park’s name has been taken to new depths fit for those willing to drown in it. Already recognized for his extensive work on the production end in hip-hop, the Inland Empire emcee now looks to expand his rapping resume even more after venturing onto the mic with Noa James as Pterodactyl Jones only a few years back. The project is available for free download via his own website curtissking.com, and is a properly framed, passionately painted self portrait embodied in both the raging and soothing movements associated with water. Tempered like the weather in William Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Curtiss King dives deep into uncharted emotions and moods, which in turn has made the musical experience far more meaningful for all his listeners combined.
