Jonathan Toubin, who VICE Magazine calls "the only DJ we actually like" and Rolling Stone declares "the most liked man in the soul music scene," was awarded "BEST DJ" in The Village Voice 60th Anniversary “BEST OF NYC.” Juxtaposing raw, wild, and uncommon original 45rpm vinyl sides by unsung artists on the beat for today's dance floor, Jonathan Toubin and his New York Night Train party machine's persistent nightly work has carved out a unique space in contemporary culture and influenced scores of DJs and parties everywhere. While best known for the world’s most popular and prolific soul party, the Soul Clap and Dance-Off, and NYC’s biggest and longest-running weekly rock’n’roll dance, Shakin' All Over Under Sideways Down, he’s also spent the last decade turning over 2000 parties at hundreds of nightclubs, rock concerts, and major music festivals on five continents – from Bonnaroo to Benicassim. He’s also the first living DJ with compilations on the legendary Norton Records (with five Souvenirs of the Soul Clap LPs), the first 45 DJ with Burger Records cassettes, the first DJ with his own night at Lincoln Center, and the only DJ with a full annual SXSW night dedicated to his party.
