“JONATHAN TOUBIN was just awarded 2015’s “BEST DJ” in the VILLAGE VOICE 60th anniversary 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 is pretty much the only DJ we actually like.” (VICE, 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)
“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)
“BEST DJ” (Village Voice “Best of NYC” 2014 Readers’ Poll winner)
“Jonathan Toubin is New York rock and soul DJ who plays his collection of original 45rpm records to packed dance floors all over the world.” (Outlook, BBC World Service, 2014)”
“The best soul DJ in the land” (Flavorpill, 2013)
“The world’s PREMIERE soul DJ — on 45s, no less — no party is complete without a little Toubin.” (MTV.com, 2014)
“The tireless DJ Jonathan Toubin keeps dancers moving at his Soul Clap parties” (New Yorker, 2013)
“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)
“DJ Jonathan Toubin is creating his own kind of dance revolution” (Village Voice, 2011)
“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)
