Wouter Van Belle, as Wtrx,  is pleased to release Virtual Vacation, an album with soulful reggae and dub grooves, available digital and on vinyl. The album has it roots in a 2002 jam session with long time collaborators Marc Bonne (drums) and Yannic Fonderi (keyboards), the late Jean Marie Aerts on bass and Wouter on Hammond. The session was recorded on a 8-track Studer A80 in Wouter’s then home studio. Two decades later the recordings were transferred, edited, overdubbed and mixed by Wouter at Studio Powertone.
