Tonight is a legendary party guaranteed to be great music and big fun – but don’t take our word for it…
“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 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)
“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)
“Widely acknowledged as the mother of all soul jams” (Time Out New York, 2010)
“I’m not one of the Schmucks who will lament over New York not being “what it used to be”, but I will say that we’re not fans of this dismal wasteland of Eurotrash tourists and guidos with polo shirts unbuttoned down to their navels grinding to the repetitive pounding of bad electro… Enter Jonathan Toubin, and his simple-yet-visionary approach to revamping the entire lanscape of New York and Brooklyn from midnight till the after hours. His New York Night Train parties have become stuff of sheer legend do to the simple fact that Toubin actually seems to care about what he is producing. His meticulous approach has paid off quite handsomely as pretty much each and every party with the Jonathan Toubin stamp on it seems to be the biggest party going on for that given night.” (Impose Magazine, 2009)
“New York Night Train’s Jonathan Toubin throws the raddest underground rock parties in New York” (Paper Magazine, 2008)
“The mid-’60s to early-’70s r &b and funk will have you dancing with the stars.” (Village Voice “Voice Choices” 2007)
