8Beats is an internet radio dedicated to video game music, based in Lyon, France.

A story of sharing

Our mutual love for video game music since high school inspired us to create a Facebook group a few years ago, where we shared our favorite tracks with some friends. As we discovered more amazing music, our desire to reach a wider audience grew stronger, leading us to establish our own radio station.

Despite facing technical issues and financial constraints, and after months of reflection, 8Beats finally became a reality in September 2021.

Connecting cultures

Designed as a global platform for niche sound enthusiasts and passionate gamers, our aim is to build bridges and highlight all the creative talents that bring this vibrant subculture to life, be it: composers, labels, content creators, DJs, and many more.

Explore a realm of exciting new sounds, from nostalgic childhood favorites to hidden indie gems. With 24/7 live thematic programming and a unique collection of shows, our curators handpick the best of what video game music has to offer every week.
