The Indianapolis EDM music scene is a constantly growing and booming underground culture; from house music night at Social to big names at The Vogue. With a multitude of venues to choose from and many production companies contributing, it's not uncommon to be able to attend two or three different EDM shows per night. And it is Indianapolis that Lithuanian-American producer, Ejion, found his home.

Born in Chicago to Lithuanian parents, Ejion became involved with The Chicago Youth Concert Orchestra. As a drummer, he cut an EP with Teratological Nightmare while attending Ball State University for Music Media Production. It was in college that he got his hand at DJing and producing with the Muncie EDMC.

Ejion moved to Indianapolis in July of 2017 and quickly became involved with the music scene there. Most recently he released a two track EP titled "The Sun and Moon" which includes a "Sisters of the Moon" remix. Ejion dedicated the EP to his girlfriend of two years whom he refers to as his "sun and moon."

Do you feel this EP is different than what you normally release?

I feel that the style goes back to roots where I complete super sauw synthesizers to create an epic atmosphere. I've always loved chord progressions so I tried to incorporate more harmonies to enhance the listening experience.

Why did you chose "Sisters of the Moon" to remix?

Well, I know that my girlfriend loves Fleetwood Mac and she herself is a

"sister of the moon." So I thought it would be fitting to use it as the track since the EP is dedicated to her.

Tell me more about girlfriend?

She is strong and gives people life, she pushes through whatever comes her way. "The Dawning" is the soundscape of the rising sun which represents her strength and life. It was actually part one of her Valentine's Day gift, the second part was a scarf from Ukraine.

So far this year Ejion has released an EP and two singles; "You Dream" and "Mask Off Remix." Ejion has more tracks and EPs scheduled for release later this year. Aside from music production and DJing, Ejion works as a production manager for Real Metal Reviews owned by his brother.

Ejion continues to stay involved with the Muncie EDMC as wel as New Hippies Entertainment. His next Muncie show will be at Muncie Gras on Saturday, March 24.

Until then, you can catch him at a few different Indy bars. House of Babylon room at The Melody Inn on March 13 and Saint Patrick's Day at the Glowroom of 247 Skybar.

Ejion will be at Altered Thurzdaze: Ejion & Friends with BAI, Ventura, and Kados on March 8 at The Mousetrap.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
