Title: More Pregnancy
Artist: GSD, GG Alien (Dem Hunger)
Release ID: ADDIG003
Louis Johnstone is back with the next release on the Astro:Dynamics label, ‘More Pregnancy’. Most will know him from his Dem Hunger alias, under which he released the much praised Caveman Smack tape on Matthewdavid’s Leaving Records imprint early last year – and went on to seriously mangle Gonjasufi’s ‘SuzieQ’ for The Caliph’s Tea Party remix album on Warp Records, followed up by a split 7” release with Cupp Cave:
>> Listen & Download it For FREEEEE <<
Others may also be aware of Johnstone’s work as Wanda Group – having released the ‘Bass Urine’ cassette early this year on the ultra-cool NNA Tapes label.
Johnstone isn’t so much of new face as it may seem however, having released work under a wide array of aliases for a few years now. A DIY artist through and through, he creates wonderful avant collages – often rather extreme in their nature in the vein of Power Electronics, and on other occasions sublime and immersive with a Radiophonic edge. He also spends his spare time creating visual collages utilizing found images – you can check those out on his (now abandoned) ‘Shelley Duvall’ blog, or on his tumblr ‘Alien Pisshead’.
To get more familiar with the Wanda girls, i really suggest you to listen to this 16 minutes session they prepared
for their listening session at Bozar Electronic weekend in Brussels last October…..Mostly unreleased material…..
So F* Dope
THIS ONE IS LOTS OF DEM HUNGER STUFF THAT NEVER REALLY CAME OUT AND ALSO MIXED WITH VARIOUS NEW STUFF OR OLD OR WHATEVER.

This particular release is intended to be seen as a split release involving two aliases, GSD and GG Alien, and contains two tracks ‘Hair Tonic for Longer Hair’ (credited to the former) and ‘Bag Lady #31 Very B’ (credited to the latter) – we aren’t going to attempt to get into describing these tracks, but we love them dearly, and hope that you do too.
- GSD – Hair Tonic for Longer Hair
- GG Alien – Bag Lady #31 Very B
It’s a split release by GSD and GG Alien – two aliases of Louis Johnstone, someone you might know as Dem Hunger. it’s out on Boomkat as an upfront exclusive on the 14th of this month, and everywhere else on the 28th.
*BUY* BOOMKAT REVIEW *BUY*
Ear-catching double-header from Dem Hunger under two different aliases – GSD and GG Alien. The GSD track, ‘Hair Tonic For Longer Hair’, is a prismatic piece of digital minimalism that sounds almost like something off SND’s Atavism, less hard-edged, aiming for a more blissed-out cosmic zone. The beats come out for the flipside track, but are wonked out to the point of abstraction. All the same there’s a bit of gangster atittude to it; imagine one of Autechre’s knottiest, most rhythmically insensible productions cut with ‘Sicko Cell’.
