”We Call It Real” was recorded live and mixed at the Odd Funk studio in Hämeenlinna, Finland. The album is a triumph of raw organic funk with elements from afrobeat thrown in for good measure. On the album, the band aims at capturing the explosive nature of their celebrated live performances and to also highlight the highly evolved musical communication between the band members. The Blassics’ sound is akin to rough original funk seven inches but the band does not settle for recycling the genre’s cliches, instead going for a new sound of their own. The end result is an LP which echoes its makers‘ love for the past, present and the future of funk.
