"Following the release of Oliver 'Beige' Braun's debut album, I Don't Either (the Leaf Label) and the Non-Profit-EP, comes his first album release for Burnt Friedman's label, Nonplace. Ein Königreich Für Eine Handgranate is aimed as much at the feet as the brains, with elements of wrecked furniture, lo-res R 'n' B, electro-smog and Beige's poignant wit that sleeps in the knife drawer. A long-time fellow of Friedman, Beige is one of Cologne's most subdued, reclusive and anti-hoity-toity programmers, sharing a mutual interest in reverent retro-futuristic excursions. Ein Königreich Für Eine Handgranate incorporates dismantled digits of hi-energy funk and purely electronically generated click-and-clonk beats, typical for the Beige-sound. A Timbalandscape drawn by a punk in a state of obsessive spasm."
