the premier dj to get the party going,
Michael Saltsman, "Mr Salt," (formerly DJ Pumpkin Patch) brings over 15 years of DJ and production experience to every party he plays. From Brooklyn lofts, to LES dive bars, to Manhattan clubs, to high-end private parties and corporate events, Michael caters his seamless style to each unique crowd. Most of all, he loves music and can't wait to play some for you.
Music has been at the center of Michael's life since the beginning. Classically trained on the trumpet (and poorly trained on many other instruments), Michael played in jazz bands, orchestras, and touring rock bands all before the age of 17. At Indiana University's Music School, Michael earned a Bachelors of Science in Audio Recording & Technology, focusing on audio production and engineering. There he also developed a love for DJing, and the vast world of music from all genres that came with it. For the past 10 years he has been living in NYC, and has worked at high end recording studios by day while DJing by night. Currently he is the Music Supervisor for Ralph Lauren, focusing on curation and branding through music and flawless execution.
