The unu City Tape series
The Munich based DJ duo BAAL produces the second 60 minute mixtape for the ‘unu city tape’ series
Berlin, January 3rd 2016
Urban mobility brand unu launches a new mixtape for the ‘unu City Tape’ series in collaboration with the Munich based DJ Duo BAAL. Their fresh sound of deep house and techno sets the frame around this 60 minute city tape that takes you straight downtown Munich.
The unu is a clever combination of innovative technology, timeless aesthetics and urban flair. The City Tape created by Matthias Draexler and Matthias Schuell launched by unu is the second one in a series of collaborations with talented DJs influencing the city life in their respective cities.
For the second mix in the unu City Tape series unu chose the DJ duo Baal, from the city where the unu story began: Munich. A full-hour track of way-down Deep House to transport the listener into mystic spheres.
“We started our City Tape series in collaboration with amazing local artists because we believe that music is an essential part of city life and culture. Munich has a special place in our hearts as it is the place where the adventure started, so this mix from BAAL is very important to us” says Elias Atahi, Co-founder and CXO.
The DJ duo was formed in 2014 and with their hebrew name BAAL and their signature sound of neo-classic combined with house grooves and deep techno, they have marked their place on the Munich music scene. With two solid mixtapes lined up on the unu SoundCloud channel the fundament for your city cruise has taken shape. Tune in and enjoy the sound of Munich by BAAL.
unu - the smart electric scooter
unu combines innovative technology with stylish aesthetics and urban flair. With their first product, the electric scooter with portable batteries launched in 2014, unu delivered for city residents a new mobility solution. City riding with the smart electric scooter means an environmentally friendly and practically noiseless journey.
The firm’s homepage unumotors.com allows the unu buyer to pick a configuration from six body colours and three options for the seat to personalize the electric scooter. The unu will be delivered directly to the customer’s front door. The affordability of the unu – from 1,699 Euro in Germany - is thanks to an e-mobility business model new in the automotive industry. With running costs of 70 Cent / 100 km the unu is also the most economical way of being mobile in the city.
The unu electric scooter is fitted with the KERS technology (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) familiar from Formula 1 race cars – an application of the brakes sends energy back to replenish the batteries. The batteries are portable and can be recharged at any 230 V power outlet. In several cities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland anyone interested in experiencing this innovative technology for themselves can sign up for a test drive. These are organized through a strategically implemented network of unu Pioneers. In 2016 further European cities will be added to the list of those where an unu test drive is offered.
Since 2015 the unu crew is co-located in the Factory Berlin complex, a centre for start-up enterprises which is also the home of Twitter, Pinterest, SoundCloud and Freelectics. The young firm is expanding rapidly and now has a staff of almost forty. In addition there are over fifty unu Pioneers deployed to arrange test drives for potential customers.
