Jonathan Toubin

“Jonathan is pretty much the only DJ we actually like.” (VICE Magazine, 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)

"The most-liked man in the soul music scene" (Rolling Stone, 2012)

Just voted “BEST DJ” in the 2014 Village Voice “Best of NYC” Readers Poll, Jonathan Toubin is best known for his dynamic DJ sets comprised of little-known original 45rpm early rock and soul records from the 1950s and 1960s with occasional punk detours - an aesthetic he calls ”maximum rock and soul”. He’s also the force behind the distinctive New York Night Train parties - which include world's most popular and prolific soul party, the Soul Clap and Dance-Off - which draws a capacity crowd at the Brooklyn Bowl, had an entire night dedicated to it at Lincoln Center Midsummer Night Swing, is the annual official South By Southwest closing event, and appears in dozens of international markets and major festivals annually. Toubin, his bespoke suits, and his exquisite 45s have popped up at over 1900 gigs in hundreds of venues on five continents since 2007 - everywhere from Brazil to Iceland to Israel to Australia. He currently has DJ mix tapes available on Burger Records and two new compilation LPs "Souvenirs of the Soul Clap" Vol. 1 and 2 on Norton Records.
