The Death of Rave:

"[...] Formed from an ascetic palette of untreated beats and single-frequency synths, The Neurobiology Of Moral Decision Making flaunts Fell and Lázár's microscopic attention to detail throughout, with each track drawing your attention to a tiny parameter variation. studies of Ryoji Ikeda and Florian Hecker, the results are unexpectedly itchy, funky and exhilarating - as the press release says, this neuroscience is "almost compatible with footwork". Amid all the odd numbered time signatures and disorientating multitimbral drones, the disc works a Sincere homage to the intricate web of kick drums and snares of Chicago dance music.

When Autechre and Aphex Twin deployed loops of ball-bearing sounds a decade and a half ago, in "VI Scose Poise" and "Bucephalus Bouncing Ball" ,things could slip up and fall flat. This self-conscious IDM was, as Matthew Ingram put it in The Wire 349, "the worst of both worlds, like pipe-smoking breakdancer". Here, in the untitled seventh track, the same rhythmic pattern spawns five minutes of compelling material, a rapid dancefloor cut in which Fell's beat suddenly drops midway through, leaving Lázár's synth flickering alongside a flurry of invisible trainers. The album retains a focus on the danceable, at least until the 12 minute finale, whose strobing and pitched-up snares from the highest bpm of the entire set. Like Hans Christian Andersen's gory tale of the red shoes, this flurry of hyper-rhythmic noise finally passes the bounds of footwork altogether, pointing towards a mechanical state in which human dance is impossible.
