GameBeat Studios, LLC was founded in April of 1998 by Darryl S. Duncan. Darryl is a veteran songwriter/producer with several credits in the main stream music industry as a staff songwriter for Warner Brothers and A&M records. Darryl has written for and/or produced artists such as Jeffrey Osborne, Chaka Khan, EW&F, Michael Jackson, and R. Kelly to name a few. Darryl was even a solo artist himself on Motown in 1987.
After several years in the main stream music industry, Darryl decided to transition his career into other arenas and after much research and deliberation the electronic entertainment and advertising fields were the industries that Darryl had his eye on. Darryl was then hired by Electronic Arts to establish and run the audio department at EA Florida. As Audio director, lead composer & sound designer. Darryl was responsible for much of the audio in some of EA's best selling sports game titles. After 3 years with EA, Darryl then decided it was time to step out on his own and thus GameBeat Studios was born. GameBeat's game credits include John Madden Football, Microsoft's Zoo Tycoon, Dance Dance Revolutions and The Sims just to name a few. GameBeat's main offices are located in the Chicago area.
