Brainstorm Artists International (B.A.I.) formerly Broken Records, was an artist-run record label founded in 1987 by Gene Eugene, Ojo Taylor, and Barry Hill. The label was distributed globally by Sony/Epic Music, among others, and closed in 1997 due to distribution issues.

Located in Fullerton, California, B.A.I. became a secular-crossover label and played a part in the development of the West Coast and Canadian Christian alternative music scenes. The label focused primarily on modern rock, rap, soul/R&B, and hip-hop, garnering Grammy and Dove nominations and awards.
