Laurent Baudoux aka Lawrence Le Doux is a long-standing producer from Brussels involved in countless off-grid projects.  Since the late 90s, his most prominent work have been released on e.g. Sonig, Grand Royal (yes, That Grand Royal) and Thin Consolation. 
Terrestre’ is a floor-minded 4-track EP, with a sleeve design by label co-founder Dimitri Runkkarri & made on a Vandercook SP-20 letterpress, using cork, lead typefaces, paper and ink.  We’ve made 300 copies.
