WHAT IS PUREPOMP RECORDS
“PurePomp Records” is a group of creators in Kenya focusing on art, music and video
MEANING OF PUREPOMP:
Pure: With no Spot/Unmixed
① Our VISION.
There are countless trans-tribal cultures in Kenya, with traditional Rhythms and musical instruments in each region.
PPR creates and disseminates unprecedented music by sampling those traditional beats and timbres and fusing them with the new generation of music scenes.The music is fused with "lyrics that mix English and Swahili", which we plan to portray and disseminate.
”Edgy things from real local”, “What do young African artists think about every day?” or “The current state of Kenya, which continues to accelerate and develop day by day” and so on. And those activities lead to providing opportunities in education of citizens through music.
In line with the vision, we will carry out music projects for children staying in children homes in Kenya.
Specifically, we will provide them with beats and produce their music for free while the children write their own lyrics enabling them to grow their artistic talent.
There will be counselors to work with the children, checking on their progress therefore ensuring a positive impact on their lives.
Not limited to music, we will support youth so that they can grow healthy or soundly.
② Our MISSION During 12month.
We are going to create 5 songs per month ×12month = 72 songs
→Post on SMS every time when we create the beats and songs.
Music project for the kids in a children's home.
(We visit a several children’s home and operate the music project with children)
→Cheer up, support the children with music.
→Share their talent to the society.
We are going to make 15 music videos during 12month.
I will be promoting, marketing, or branding The PurePomp Records and We become a good group to the society.
→Featuring local artists OR international artists.
→Making a YouTube Channel and trying to have 10,000 subscribers in the world.
→Posting every progress on Internet platforms everyday

※I'm experienced with projects like Making Beats, Music Production, and Mixing & Mastering. I would like to continue and enhance this journey by meeting and working with new and more people all over the Universe. To be honest, Since I left children’s home, I tried to run a Business or working somewhere by myself and I have been struggling and hustling hard to pay for my Home rent”, and I kept moving from a friend place to the other friend’s place, sometimes I miss meals so that I can save for my rent at least I get a place to sleep and Actually the situation around me, it has been getting worse Since Covid-19 came. It's a crisis but I really want to take this as chance to have a small Bedroom and have my own producer system to achieve our vision and our plans for the next stage.
