Monday Choon: Alex Sonata & TheRio - The Real Thing

 


Italian and Scottish duo might not work for everyone but if you are like me and enjoy a whisky with your pizza or pasta than maybe this duo will work for you too, Alex Sonata and TheRio are no strangers to trance music as they have been producing music on Enhanced and Armada Music for years. The duo have been collaborating since 2018 and have been recognised by big name artist in the industry from the likes of Gareth Emery, Cosmic Gate and Armin Van Buuren. They recently released their 4-track EP on Ajunabeats of which we have the track "The Real Thing" featured on the blog today. The song has a proper big room trance feel with a hard bassline that kicks in midway giving it that high energy feel after the melodic intro with the vocal chorus. They also released their live set from Porto Flavia on YouTube which is also epic, so if you get a gap, its a must watch and listen to!

Bucket Seat: BMW M240i xDrive


People often ask me what's the best car I've ever driven and it's a difficult one because I've driven a lot of great cars so it's hard to pinpoint one that has been "the best". Also there's so many factors that make certain cars great, each with their own "x factor" that make the drive with them memorable. While I can name some of the more expensive and exotic brands that I've gotten behind the wheel off, it wouldn't feel right as some of the more mainstream manufacturers get it right with some models too. Not too long ago I got to spend some time with a car just like that, a car where the manufacturer developed with a purpose, and that purpose was to bring joy to whomever drove it, that car was the new BMW M240i xDrive.


DESIGN

Looks are subjective and with most of BMW's designs of recent, this one too received a mixed bag from the greater motoring community. Whole the new 2 Series doesn't come with the big buck-tooth grille, the rear end was the issue if concern for many.  Personally, I don't see the problem, the car is designed beautifully with all the right curves and looks, it's a proper coupe design with its short-wheel base stocky stance and menacing figure. It is very different to the 2 Series Gran Coupe which came out a few years ago, that was based on the 1 Series, this is brand new design based on technology from the old 4 Series that see's it gain a wider wheel tract, stiffer chassis and 3cm lower than the previous model. This particular model I had on test is quite a special one, as its the only example so far in the country that features the full M Sport bits and pieces in exposed carbon fiber. Finished in "Thunder Night Metallic" which is a purple that funny enough seems to be the colour of choice for most manufacturers now with each finding creative names for it. The combination works quite well with the dark contrasts of the carbon fiber and the shadowline package which see a black finish to various elements. The car came with the optional extra 20" M Sport Star Spoke Alloy Wheels which really add to the menacing character of the car. The 2 Series features a more common kidney grille style from BMW unlike its bigger brother, the 4 Series, and the grille is active which see's it closed when required. Moving to the rear, which is the area that has caused the most controversy, the car is shaped to taper to the back with has a straight off hexagonal shape. and the lights take on a similar shape as well. Many feel that this isn't very BMW like but it doesn't take you a while to find similarities with previous gen BMW designs for example the E90 BMW 3 Series. The interior of the new 2 Series is pretty similar to the G20 3 Series, obviously customized to suit the slightly smaller cabin. 


PERFORMANCE

Now we get to the crux of the matter with the new BMW 2 Series, at the heart of the car it features BMW's award winning B58 engine which is a 3.0-litre, straight six motor that produces 285kW and 500Nm of torque. With the TwinScroll turbo, the engine is extremely reactive with minimal lag when power is required. Coupled with BMW's Sports 8-speed Steptronic automatic gearbox, it is literally a marriage made in heaven where the two talk so perfectly with each other that there isn't a need for one to swap over into manual mode to make use of the paddle shifts. The M240i does feature BMW's four-wheel drive system, xDrive which powers all four wheel but the car is rear-axel biased where by more power is sent to the rear wheels of the car. This is very apparent when launching the car, BMW claim the 0-100km/h time is 4,2 seconds but on my few attempts it was much quicker than that, even hitting below the 4 second mark. We know it can go fast in the straight line but with my time with the car, I found it to be even better on the bends, the cars low center of gravity combined with BMW's perfect 50/50 weight distribution make it an absolute demon when hitting the winding roads. The downforce generated by the cars design keep you planted and with the four-wheel drive gives you more confidence to speed up when exiting corners knowing that car will do what you want it to do. M240i has upgraded brakes which increase the stopping power on a car of its size, couple this with the clever rear differential and adaptive multi-mode suspension makes this a track ready car which begs my next question, how much more better can the upcoming M2 actually be?


COMFORT

Which this cars suspension is much stiffer and features large 20" alloy wheels, the ride quality of the 2 Series is very comfortable for a sports coupe. Driving modes do play a big part in this where EcoPro and Comfort mode ease up on the sports suspension while Sports and Sports+ make it much more rigid and stiffer but with the nicely styled sports leather seats, its still maintains that level of luxury that won't give you lower back pains when exiting. The car comes with dual-climate control, heated seats for the driver and front passenger. Both seats are electronically adjustable with the driver getting memory seats with up-to 3 settings. While the BMW M240i does feature two rear bucket seats, it's worth noting that it isn't the most comfortable place to sit and can get quite claustrophobic for them, what is nice though is when getting into the back seats, there is a lever located at the back of each chair that when pulled forward it automatically moves forward to give the passenger a nice big entrance to get to the rear, and when the lever is released to put the seat back, it automatically adjusts to the position it was. This negates the previous issues faced in previous coupes that find the front passenger having to re-adjust their seat to their preference prior to the seat being pulled forward for the rear passengers to get in. This car was loaded with extras, stand out for me has to be the BMW Adaptive LED headlights, BMW Connected drive which has your integrated mobile apps which are enabled wireless and even has the option to download a virtual key to your phone, using NFC and other technologies, you can drive the car without having the actual key. Other options that were included were a glass sunroof, Harman/ Kardon sound system, and that M Performance parts. 


VERDICT

When you look at the M240i xDrive on the whole, its not much different to the Z4, which has the same engine, same sort of chassis being a coupe roadster but the drive is so much more different in the two, its actually more aggressive that the Z4 and has a certain level of practicality to it compared to the Z4. Everything about this car works well, from the comfort of the car, to the luggage compartment being large enough to get two golf bags (with the drivers out), yes I tested this myself. Also while this engine is widely used in the BMW model range, I genuinely feel its best suited to this car, as a drivers sports car it delivers the perfect amount of power and the notes from the trapezoid shape tailpipes produce a beautiful orchestra when in full thrust. Unlike the larger coupes, the 2 Series is the perfect length, meaning you won't find your self in awkward situations at shopping centers if someone parks to  closely to you as the doors aren't as long as that of the 4 or 8 Series. Overall, this car blew me away, yes there is a impractical part to it like any sports car with the fuel economy being the biggest red flag, but if you buying a car like this, the last thing in your mind is your average consumption. It really is a beautiful car and you will fall in love with driving again when getting behind the wheel of this, for me this is the perfect sports coupe and others should take note of what BMW have done, but coming back to my question previously, if this car is so great how are BMW going to better the M2? Having more power is one thing but could it be too powerful?

Bucket Tech: HUAWEI MateBook D15

Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG) last Friday announced the launch of its all-new Super Device line HUAWEI MateBook D15 which offers you a seamless integration brought by the Smart Office setup. The new 12.6-inch HUAWEI MateBook D15 is available on the Huawei website and across select retailers in South Africa, starting 15 June 2022 priced at R11 999.


The all-purpose HUAWEI MateBook D15 is made for everyone and continues the design elements established by the MateBook D Series, that utilises Huawei’s ‘Pure Shape’ minimalistic design philosophy with its thin and light metal body. It also features a 15-inch HUAWEI FullView display with an 87% screen-to-body ratio.


Solid performance supported by a new 11th Gen Intel® Core™ Processor

To many of us, a laptop is not only a tool to get work done but also an entertainment platform. A new 11th Gen Intel® Core™ Processor built on the 10nm SuperFin technology powers the HUAWEI MateBook D15. The quad-core, eight-thread processor has faster performance to effortlessly handle everyday usage scenarios and features integrated Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics to provide graphics performance rivalling entry level discrete counterparts. The new HUAWEI MateBook D15 can be configured with up to 16GB dual-channel RAM for faster and smoother multitasking and features a high speed SSD (Solid State Drive) to further improve the overall system performance. Also, an advanced cooling system featuring high-density HUAWEI Shark fin fan and two heat pipes, leverages the bionic design to ensure the laptop performs stably under load.

Metallic beauty with a FullView Display offering exciting visuals while protecting eyesight

A product exemplifying Huawei’s “Pure Shape” design philosophy, the new HUAWEI MateBook D15 has a minimalist design with clean refined lines running through the metal body, creating an understated appearance in either classic Space Grey or an elegant Mystic Silver colourway. Additionally, the HUAWEI MateBook D15 is as light as 1.56kg and measures only 16.9mm at its thickest point. Travelling with it is effortless and the rich array of ports along the sides of the laptop will satisfy most everyday usage scenarios. The HUAWEI MateBook D15 features a 15-inch anti-glare display that retains the series’ signature FullView design, offering an 87 percent screen-to-body ratio with a 16:9 aspect ratio for immersive cinematic experiences. The display also has passed TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certification and Flicker Free certifications for a protective and comfortable viewing experience. The low blue light level helps reduce eyestrain related to prolonged display use.


Triple your productivity and creativity with the Smart Office Experience

We all want the ability to switch seamlessly between our laptops, tablets smartphones and monitors. This does not only guaranty swift and effortless operation, it also opens gateways to boost productivity and creativity. Huawei’s Smart Office experience enables you to connect all three devices at the same time such as a laptop, tablet and monitor. When a HUAWEI MateView GT is connected with a compatible laptop, for example, with the HUAWEI MateBook D15 via a USB-type C, it becomes a second monitor for the laptop. Furthermore, the same laptop can also be connected with a tablet via Multi-screen Collaboration, with keyboard and mouse connected to the HUAWEI MateView GT. This combination makes it possible for you to use up to three independent screens at once, with content flowing seamlessly between the trio!


Swift Charging

One of the common drawbacks of laptops are the battery life and charging speed, right? Thankfully, Huawei tackles this point with the HUAWEI MateBook D15. The AC adapter supports HUAWEI SuperCharge™ for quick charging with compatible Huawei smartphones. A 15-minute charging session provides enough charge for the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 to run for up to two hours.


Login securely with fingerprint power button

One recurring feature that you are going to love on the HUAWEI MateBook D15 is the inclusion of the fingerprint scanner embedded in the power button. This is a nice touch and makes biometric unlocks a breeze and most of all, you do not have to sign in with passwords or scan your fingerprint separately to login. While some people are content with a system good enough for web surfing, others require a laptop than can handle tasks that are more intensive. The HUAWEI MateBook D15 gives you all that and a tad bit more starting with its thin and light minimalist metallic body, eye protection FullView Display, 11th Gen Intel® Core™ Processor for a smooth and solid performance, Smart Office experience which offers futuristic ways to interconnect with multiple devices for seamless cross-device sharing and more.


The HUAWEI MateBook D15 is available for R11 999 on the Huawei Online Store and will be available for purchase from the 15 June 2022.

Monday Choon: Andain - Promises ( Myon Summer of Love Reboot)


Probably one of my all time favourite trance songs has just gotten a reboot by the same person who did the original remix that got me to love the song in the first place! "Promises" by Andain is a cult classic of note with many big name artist having played it in the yesteryear of its release. Myon then came along and did a remix which just breathed new life in the track and elevated it to another level with a faster BPM during a time which trance energy was making a strong showing in clubs around the world. Fast forward 11 years and the Hungarian DJ and producer has done it again, with a reboot of his Summer of Love remix of the track, it's wrong to say it's better than the previous but rather a great new reboot of the track and one that's sure to ignite many memories for trance lovers like myself.

Bucket Seat: VW Caddy Maxi 2.0TDI


The VW Caddy has been sort of an unsung hero in the country from the German manufacturer. While it does sell in numbers, it doesn't get the spotlight like some of the other models that roll off their production lines, obviously the hatchbacks get preferential treatment locally as they are the more popular ones from VW but as they say, you don't really notice a car or model on the road until you drive one and that is exactly what happened when I had the new VW Caddy, I began to notice how many of the older models were on the road that I never really took note off. They ranged from all-sorts, the panel vans and the family carrier, with the panel ones coming in majority. I spent some time with the Caddy Maxi 7-seater to find out why it has enjoyed some good market share in this segment.


DESIGN

When it comes to a panel style van, there's nothing sexy or sleek about it but I must take my hat off to Volkswagen, they've got elements to this car that really do make it stand out. Starting at the front with the revised headlights which are very modern and inline with their new design language, this is joined by the solid black bar instead of a grille that has the VW emblem at the centre. Moving down is where the really interesting bit comes, the bumper has a split style grille with a small opening at the top, a solid piece for the number plate and 3D like perforated bottom grill which gives the car a really modern look, almost concept like. It really is very eye catching and especially in this beautiful bronzed metallic colour I had it in. Moving along to the side profile, is is very similar to the old model, with the Maxi the car is much longer than the standard model so the side windows are larger and with the optional extra panoramic glass roof, the Caddy really maximizes on letting natural light into the cabin. The rear design is very neat and keeping to that modern look with a large rear window, with black accents bordering it, VW badge in the middle with the Caddy sign below and the handle to open the luggage hatch just below that. Overall, they've done a fantastic job on make what would be a very boring vehicle to look at, pretty nice. In fact many times I caught people walking up to have a closer look at the car. 


PERFORMANCE

While the Caddy is predominantly made as a workhorse, this version has been converted to have 7-seats and serve as a transporter. So different kind of goods if you may, the Maxi comes fitted with a 2.0-litre TDI engine that delivers 81kW and 300Nm of torque which is a substantial amount for the car considering what it's general use would be for. During my time with it we utilized all 7-seats and the car managed just fine even on long distances. The 6-speed manual gearbox did help a lot in this regard but also had me down changing a plenty to get that torque I needed which did affect the average fuel use but nothing that was too alarming. Which the chassis is large and bulky, it did maneuver quite well on the open road and around the bends at high speeds, urban driving was also surprisingly easy with it, parking in certain places can get a bit tricky with it being a bit wider than your average Polo but with the read sliding doors it isn't an issue for the passengers to get in and out of tight spots.


COMFORT 

While this was a 7-seater van, the Caddy isn't purposely built for comfort, it is pretty evident when you take a look at the interior. Much of it is made up of very robust materials, from the door panels to the dash and even the seats which is a strong fabric type to prevent short-term wear and tear. You'd understand the point of this coming from VW as the Caddy is used more as a cargo van but in this application where you have more of a passenger transporter vibe, I would have liked to see some added colour inserts into the dash and door panels just to warm the feeling up a bit in the cabin. It still comes loaded with tech like most of the new models with pre-loaded mobile applications, a touchscreen infotainment unit which has VW's latest user interface, the same as the Golf 8, it even has the touch sensitive climate control selectors which pop up on the screen like the Golf 8 as well with similar style light controls next to the the steering wheel column. The real deal breaker for the Caddy is the spaciousness of the cabin. The seats are formed in a 2-3-2 configuration with decent space for the second row seat and adequate room for the third row passengers. The seats in the third row are much smaller than the other days but are comfortable enough for an adult to sit on.  The large sliding doors make it easy to get in and out for all passengers and the ease in which the seats fold both for the second and third row makes it simple enough for a small child to do so. Overall, very practical and much better than any other 7-seater in its price segment. 


VERDICT

Overall, I can understand the application in which Volkswagen had in mind when making this car and like I said earlier, there is definitely a market for this type of vehicle locally. I've seen the type of people that were attracted to this car and listening to their applications for it just makes sense. A lot of them were adventure junkies or families that travel heavy and wouldn't mind the extra space every now and then. It certainly is a very attractive car, this colour is by far my favourite in the options list and while it not garner the attention like other VW models, it has its own charm about it. I've already seen loads of these new model Caddy's on the road since my time with it which only justifies my statement by saying there is a market for them but we don't really take note of it.
