Sydney's Royce Drixhen has been steadily building a name for himself, and his latest EP is the culmination of that, putting together five songs that get to the heart of what the rapper is all about.

The aptly titled "The Prelude" EP is set to be an intro to something much bigger, and with Royce's woozy, melodic flows perfectly complementing the atmospheric trap beats on the highly cohesive EP, whatever comes next will be something to look forward to.

Royce is also set to appear at WVS' next Big Swell showcase in Sydney on July 1, so make sure to catch his set there. Until then, you can check out the project for yourself above.
