DJ Graffiti and Martin Smith are one in the same. A multifaceted individual, perfectly comfortable being called by his stage name or government name; he’s equally well suited behind the turntables or as the corporate marketing executive. Since he began DJing professionally in 1997, DJ Graffiti aka "The Mangler" has become a staple in Michigan’s music community by rocking the dancefloor, heating up large concert audiences (*see below), spinning live shows for Detroit emcee Phat Kat, and creating mixtapes with an uncompromising level of quality. Praised for his ability to play the right music at the right time, these days Graffiti is most sought after and found at corporate and private events playing genre defying DJ sets that unite even the widest spectrum of attendees. In addition to his DJ duties in the U.S. and abroad, Martin also manages French producer Astronote, is an experienced producer himself, an occasional emcee, photo-journalist, and an alumnus of both the University of Michigan Business and Law Schools.
