Jonathan Toubin / New York Night Train kicks off his bi-weekly residency at The Django resurrecting his iconic BOOGALOO SHAMPOO soul dance party! lather it up, rinse, and repeat every two weeks!
JONATHAN TOUBIN was just awarded 2015’s “BEST DJ” in the 60th annual VILLAGE VOICE “BEST OF NYC”:
“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.”
“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)
“New York Night Train’s Jonathan Toubin is a veritable NYC nightlife institution.” (TIME OUT, “Best Parties in NYC Right Now,” 2015)
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)
