Pacific Yew – Son Of Rene

Oakland, California artist Pacific Yew has come through with a new project titled Son Of Rene. Known primarily for his lo-fi instrumental projects such as (​(​(​( T r e e s )​)​)​) (2017) and (​(​(​( Maidenhair )​)​)​) (2019), among many others, this new project is, to my knowledge and memory, the first one I’ve heard him rap.

His often minimalistic production over 15 tracks makes for a perfect soundscape for him to rap effortlessly over, as his presence on the mic as well as his ability to flow seamlessly throughout makes for an interesting listen. The subtle groove of “Worn” is fantastic, with guitar leads that add a warm texture to the track, with his confident demeanor sounding fantastic throughout. “Thrown” is similar in its tone and energy, while more soulful moments such as “Soul” and “Timers (outro)” are gorgeous and soothing, capturing Pacific Yew’s versatility not only as a producer but as a vocalist.

Son Of Rene is a great new project from one of the independent music-producing legends of the last decade or so. Go listen to Pacific Yew’s Son Of Rene below and don’t forget to support!

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by. I run In Search Of Media with the aim of giving a platform to independent beatmakers, rappers and talented musicians. I also hope to make this a home for music discovery, interesting film analysis, exhibition reviews and other interesting content for all of you guys to dive in to. I hope to start a podcast and documentary-style project soon. If you're looking to be a part of this creative project, please go to the contact page and drop me an email, or connect via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. I also write for 'Music Is My Sanctuary.' Thanks 🙏
