I really don't know which and if any of them is an original and/or legitimate design, so please be careful if you are going to use any of them in a commercial project
Philippe C. - one of the original MyFonts forum moderators and a self-publisher of the three volume Type Index - indicates that Beatsville was originally shareware by Jim Morton. That 1990's freeware and shareware was prime fodder for the ripoff companies. "Converted by ALLTYPE" is what was seen in those old nonprofessional conversions from the original Mac fonts.
