Breaking The Illusion - Live Your Life 12" [Spiteful Records]Breaking The Illusion (B.T.I) is the brainchild of artist / producer Tom Stewart, a man of many musical mannerisms. Beginning his legacy with a release under Warp Records (Nightmares On Wax' ‘Dextrous’) he soon went on to found the infamous Low Life Records which established UK legends such as Jehst and Skinnyman.

Over the next two decades his career only soared, supporting big acts like Lily Allen and Professor Green, working with Femi Fem of the Young Disciples and Hinda Hicks to producing Keith Lemon's debut single I Wanna Go On You which debuted in the UK Charts. On top of that, B.T.I has maintained a strong track record including BBC Radio 1 'Album of the Week' on Huw Stephens' show, Carling Festival 'Best Overall Unsigned Performance' Award, three MOBO Nominations and Glastonbury 'Emerging Talent' Finalist.

As a self-committed 'Golden Age' evangelist, he cites likes of beat pioneers such as Pete Rock, J-Dilla, DJ Premier and lyricists Pharoahe Monch, Redman, and Jay-Z, amongst others, as strong influences on his style and sound.
