Uncle Waffles Releases New Single “Echoes” Ahead of New EP Dropping 8/11


Today, multi-platinum international DJ-producer Uncle Waffles released a new single, “Echoes,” ahead of her second EP, “Solace,” which is set to drop on 8/11. Listen here

In this new song featuring Tony Duardo, Manana & Lusanda, Waffles debuts a more lyrical and tranquil sound that differs from the fast and upbeat tone of her first EP, “Asylum.”


Hailed as the “Princess of Amapiano,” Uncle Waffles is back, this time with the ultimate soft-girl summer track. The song begins with harmonious vocals blending seamlessly over Waffles’ atmospheric production. Her iconic tribal beats usher in the ethereal lyrics, “Echoes, but you’re not trying to let this go.”

“This new EP represents peace. It’s a reflection of the positive things that have happened in my life recently, both personally and professionally. Asylum was very upbeat and explosive, but I’m looking forward to introducing listeners to a new side of my artistry,” said Waffles. “Echoes is the first single dropping that will set the tone for what’s to come on my new EP, Solace.”
