“After his well acclaimed soundtrack lp on Hivern Discs, Brussels based producer Lawrence Le Doux is returning to homebase Vlek for his next offering. And what a project it has become: Le Doux, heads first, dived deep into the Belgian national history of electronic music, and came up with a sampler covering the various fields the Belgians have explored over the last 30 years. From digi dub over simple drum computer house to one­man industrial cassettes: 'Host' has it all.” Lawrence Le Doux opened for Matias Aguayo in one of Brussels’ major venues: Ancienne Belgique earlier this year. Lawrence Le Doux’ latest album was released on Hivern Discs (“Music For Documentaries” • 3,8/5 on RA) VLEK designer Dimitri Runkkarri’s take on the analog type press / glass printing process: “With Lawrence Le Doux, from the beginning (with "Terrestre", 2014) we used different materials to print out the sleeves. We used cork, overlapping letters, plastic cross for wall carving. This time, I had some glass left at the workshop. We wanted to try. We broke it on the press then printed it with all the texture, scratch, accidents caused by the pressure of the press.”
