Scent - Up & Down
Demonstrating that some prejudices live on, this began well but on reading that Daniele Davoli was involved, lurking behind the photogenic face of Miss Motif, Up & Down went off sooner than milk left in the sun. See, Davoli was the producer behind the Black Box's Ride On Time and in putting together a new act, he called up Flickman's Andrea Mazzali and Miss Motif, forming Scent.
Miss Motif has previously toured with Pete Tong, Paul Oakenfold and Tiesto, as well as Daniele Davoli, but there's little to distinguish Scent from anything other than it being one more from Davoli's dance-pop tapes. As with Ride On Time, Up & Down is guilty of the same accusation of it being faceless pop and although Positiva have built up the single with a set of remixes, much as they always do, only Miss Motif's vocal raises this above the ordinary.
