As St John Sessions’ reputation has developed, so too have opportunities outside its stained-glass windows: an accompanying string of performances have been established up the road at Café OTO; cultural institutions are frequently on board, most notably in the case of founding partner Moringa, a community-focused arts charity; local broadcasters NTS Radio and Boiler Room have been bringing the music to an international audience via frequent live streams. All this will now be housed within a larger umbrella company entitled ThirtyThree ThirtyThree – a double quip on both the sonic (full-length RPMs) and the spiritual (Jesus’ rather untimely demise) – with a namesake record label to match.

The imprint, set up in collaboration with The Vinyl Factory, will exist to showcase live recordings taken from St John Sessions, both home and abroad as the series expands. ThirtyThree ThirtyThree kicks off with arguably the most impactful St John performance to date: Ryuichi Sakamoto and Taylor Deupree. Last year’s concert with sound design wizard Deupree and multi-discipline legend Sakamoto – whose career has run the gamut from Oscar-winning film scores through daring proto-electronic records – was notable not only for their kinetic understanding on stage, but for the unforgettable soundscapes created by the church space. Sakamoto very recently announced his return to making music after a hiatus spent recuperating from a throat cancer diagnosis in 2014, marking TTTT001 as the first release fully co-ordinated and sanctioned following his return to health. A fittingly unique way to inaugurate a unique label, then.
