Since he began DJing professionally in 1997, DJ Graffiti aka ‘The Mangler’ has become Detroit’s go-to DJ for concerts, clubs, and corporate events. He has performed in front of audiences awaiting artists such as Jay-Z, Dave Chappelle, Eminem, Beyoncé, Snoop Dogg, Big Sean, Lupe Fiasco, Phat Kat, J.Cole and A$AP Rocky, among others.
Out of the ashes of the COVID-19 pandemic, DJ Graffiti found a passion for DJing virtual events for attendees across the globe. Since March of 2020 he has been invited to support livestreamed events by a growing list of clients including Google, Cisco, GitLab, Campbell’s, Dell and Intel.
In 2001 he co-founded a marketing company that grew to manage digital marketing campaigns for companies such as T-Mobile, Hennessy and Toyota. In 2015 the company re-branded as Overflow, a digital agency providing a comprehensive suite of marketing services to help businesses predictably and repeatedly acquire clients.
Whether music, business, or more regularly an abundance of both, DJ Graffiti aka Martin L. Smith is positioned to lead, while others take notes.
