Jonathan Toubin who VICE Magazine calls "the only DJ we actually like" and Rolling Stone says is "the most liked man in the soul music scene," was just awarded 2015's "BEST DJ" in the 60th anniversary Village Voice "Best of NYC" issue. Toubin's New York Night Train parties are cut from hours of exquisite original 45rpm vinyl singles from the 1950s and 1960s played on the beat and brought to life on dancefloors around the world. In over 2000 gigs in the last nine years, Toubin has gone where no contemporary rock and/or soul vinyl DJ has gone before - tirelessly hitting hundreds of nightclubs on five continents, major rock concerts and dozens of major music festivals (check him out at Bonnaroo June 10!). Not only is he the first 45 DJ to set foot at many of these events and venues, but he’s also the first DJ given his own entire night at Lincloln Center’s Midsummer Night’s Swing and the first DJ with an entire night of official SXSW showcases dedicated to his dance party. New York Night Train’s Soul Clap and Dance-Off isn't only the world's most popular and prolific soul party, but his Friday night Shakin' All Over Under Sideways Down is NYC's longest running weekly rock'n'roll dance (over eight years). Toubin is the first 45 DJ with Burger Records cassettes and the first living DJ with compilations on the legendary Norton Records - with four "Souvenirs of the Soul Clap" LPs released internationally last year. Juxtaposing raw, wild, and uncommon original 45rpm sides by unsung artists 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.
