DJ Jonathan Toubin Biography

"BEST DJ" - winner of Village Voice 60th Anniversary “Best of NYC” 2015 award!: "We might live in an EDM world, but Jonathan Toubin has no truck with today's musical whims. Since 2007, Toubin's Soul Clap and Dance-Off has brought throwback pizzazz and retro cool to New York's late-night underground. Culled from an endless array of long-forgotten Sixties soul singles, Soul Clap is pure musical dynamite, the kind of after-hours party that exposes today's iTunes-bred, press-play DJs for their relative lack of roots and ingenuity. No fist-bumps or atomic bass drops here; instead, Toubin lovingly crafts five-hour sets that bring lost chestnuts from the likes of Vernon Harrell and the Blendells into clearer focus for a new generation of dance enthusiasts. You can try to put your moves to better use, but you'll be hard-pressed to find more cathartic, sweatier fun elsewhere in the city." (Village Voice, 2015)

"Jonathan Toubin is a multihypenate in every sense of the word... Toubin fuses obscure rhythm and blues from the '50s and '60s, with rock 'n' roll and soul 45s. His ongoing New York Night Train parties easily draw those typically found sulking in corners of bars out onto the dance floor." (Interview Magazine 2015)

"Jonathan Toubin is seriously one of the best DJs on the planet." (Detroit Metro Times, 2015)

"BEST DJ" (winner - Village Voice "Best of NYC" Readers' Choice award 2014)

"The long-running Soul Clap remains one of the sweatiest dance parties to be experienced in New York City. Fueled by his rare and raucous 45s collection, DJ Jonathan Toubin draws on raw soul and the most feral strains of rock 'n' roll from the early 1960s to power the nights." (Wall Street Journal, 2014)

"Guaranteed good times... Wild soul all-nighter" - (The Rough Guide to New York City Top Club Nights), 2014

"Soul Clap is the most popular soul dance party in the world, playing to more people in more places than any other... Toubin plays all original soul 45s from the 1960s and uncommon upbeat cuts perfect for dancing the night away." (SXSW Music News, 2014)

"Jonathan Toubin is the reigning king of the sweaty, non-stop super-fun dance party" (Paper Magazine, 2014)

"DJ and diety" (BlackBook, 2014)

"Jonathan Toubin's New York Night Train parties are synonymous with NYC nightlife. He took the boring old formula of a DJ spinning songs for jaded twenty-somethings at a bar and created an all-out dance party that runs on soul 45s, adrenaline and style." (Metro New York, 2014)

"Particularly chic... one of the most popular spinners in Williamsburg and the founder of the New York Night Train dance parties. His fare is already cleaner and more appreciative of American pop music history than much of the rest..." (NY Times, 2013)

"Indeed, Toubin's 45 r.p.m. record-fueled, rock-and-soul heavy dance parties were some of the best, sweatiest nights we've had in this city." (Gothamist, 2011)

"Jonathan Toubin is the only person we can call a "professional DJ" without involuntarily making a jack-off motion with our hand... His parties are like what Ancient Stonehenge was like if it was, as archaeologists theorize, filled with people dressed many times better than you completely losing their shit." (VICE, 2010)
