Biography

2 Bit Radio is a high energy electronic rock band of electrifying members who create music that make their audience move their body (or at least rock their head up and down as they check out the body movers).
Band members include: Ted Melikian, Christina Cruz,  Mike Dorsey, Anthony Montgomery.

Ted and Christina spent a good 6 months in Maui in 2011 writing and producing songs from “Dirty Time”- “Life Preserver” being one of them, you can tell by the ambient groove and beachy sunset “feel good” vibe.
With little distraction from friends and family back in California it was easy to become immersed in the music. They collaborated to pull together awesome sounds and finish previously recorded original musical works in progress.

Upon completion of their debut album “Dirty Time” they headed back home to San Diego, California to rehearse the new music with quick hit drummer Kyle Bruen.
Drawn to the high energy and coolness of “Beverly Baller” and the hair tingling affect from the classic piano intro in “Never Understand”, 2 Bit Radio caught his attention right away.
Drumming since 3rd grade, he brings the influence of Motown, having grown up just outside of Detroit, Michigan. A dedicated musician, he brings the racket.

After Performing together for a few months they added guitarist Mike Dorsey to the group to help add some swagga. He just moved to the west coast from Chicago to play guitar.
In Chicago he gigged with 3 bands and was getting very anxious to be playing again.

Dirty Time singles include: “Beverly Baller”, “Living Large in LA”, and “With Me”
“Beverly Baller” is about striving to live the dream of fame and glory in Los Angeles. The story is about the lifestyle of a ‘baller’ going out and looking for fun. The beat flowing with the electronic vocals makes it so you can feel the drive down PCH to Sunset Boulevard.
“Living Large in LA” tells the story of a relationship that has gone sour. This song makes you want to dance but listen to those lyrics; there’s meaning behind every verse.
“With Me” has a true rock feel to it. The story is of life in L.A. and brings in the elements of electronic distortions, guitar riffs and provocative storylines. The lyrics take you into a world of desire and pleasure and coupled with its tremendous beat, “With Me” will make your head rock and instinctively sing along.

New songs include "Satellite" and "These are the Good Old Days"

Lyrics

Beverly Baller

Written By: 2 Bit Radio

I'm heading to the west side
chasing all the bitches looking for the riches
following the footsteps of the Hollywood stars at the Sunset bars
with the Beverly Baller’s in their swank ass cars

Range Rovers and Mercedes Benz’s
Rolex watches and Gucci purses
Hop skip and a jump we’ll be in my car by 4 o'clock
on the 101 by 6 o'clock hittin’ PCH by 8 o'clock x2

I'm heading to the beach side
chasing all the ladies looking for the maybes
following the footsteps of the Hollywood stars at the Sunset bars
with the Beverly Baller’s in their swank ass cars

Range Rovers and Mercedes Benz’s
Rolex watches and Gucci purses
Hop skip and a jump we’ll be in my car by 4 o'clock
on the 101 by 6 o'clock hittin’ PCH by 8 o'clock x2

Hit that ass, shake that ass, move that ass, grab that ass x4

Range Rovers and Mercedes Benz’s
Rolex watches and Gucci purses
Hop skip and a jump we’ll be in my car by 4 o'clock
on the 101 by 6 o'clock hittin’ PCH by 8 o'clock x2

Hit that ass, shake that ass, move that ass, grab that ass x4

Shake that ass x6

Living Large in LA

Written By: 2 Bit Radio

Hollywood is beating you up
Turning you upside down
Turning you inside out
Beating you up and spitting you out
out, out

Why are our worlds so different?
We used to share the same point of view
Why did you pack your bags and move?
your such a social disease you fool

are you living large x4 in LA

City smog is choking you up
Turning you inside out
Making your heart turn black
All of your so called friends
Who can never be found
Take advantage of you
When they come around
Why are we so belligerent?
It used to be just me and you
You turned the corner and left me dry
I sit and ponder and wonder why

Are you living large X4 in LA x2
Why are our worlds so different
Are you living large X4 in LA x2

With Me

Written By: 2 Bit Radio

I wanna take you to the midnight scene
your such a dirty girl you know what I mean
caviar and limousines are what you get when your with me yeah

I wanna take you to the midnight scene
Your such a dirty girl you know what I mean
Caviar and limousines are what you get when your with me

I wanna take you around the world
I wanna wine and dine and call you my girl
shiny diamond rings and fancy things are
what you get when your with me yeah

I wanna take you all around the world
Wine and dine and call you my girl
Diamond rings and fancy things are
What you get when your with me yeah

I wish I could take them back for sure
You have to live your life they say
You have to free your mind of thoughts.

Never Understand

Written By: 2 Bit Radio

What you want you get
Demands always met
One day you’ll regret how you walked away

What did I do to deserve this pain?
Why do I feel the way I do?
Every time I speak to you,
it seems you never understand

Heart I gave to you
was not enough for you
karma will get you and I wont be there

What did I do to deserve this pain?
Why do I feel the way I do?
Every time I speak to you
it seems you never understand

Oh yeah

Ill do what you say

(mumbling)

oouh ouhh ouuh
oouh ouhh ouuh oouh ouhh ouuh

What did I do to deserve this pain?
Why do I feel the way I do?
Every time I speak to you
it seems you never understand
