And his parties are like what Ancient Stonehenge was like if it was, as archeologists theorize, filled with people dressed many times better than you completely losing their shit."For years New York Night Train conductor/soul proprietor Mr. Jonathan Toubin has been the most popular, prolific, and highest-earning rock and soul DJ on the North American nightclub circuit - taking the 45rpm dance party to a whole new level conceptually, culturally, and commercially. Though known for "maximum rock and soul" dance club sets at his weekly Shakin' All Over Under Sideways Down party, the instructional Land of 1000 Dances spectacle, the elaborately grandious multi-media worldwide "Happenings", and many more, his 1960s soul/r&b/funk/boogaloo Soul Clap and Dance-Off party has put Mr. T on the map as soul man and left a gigantic footprint on contemporary urban nightlife. Working over 1200 gigs the last six years, Mr. Jonathan Toubin has managed to keep one boot in the counter-culture from which he emerged (punk bars, DIY basements, loft parties, art galleries, music venues, and shady afterhours spots) while crossing over to dance clubs, prestigious festivals, boutique hotels, museums, ivy league colleges, fashion parties, arena pop/rock shows, and even raves - garnering press in highbrow publications and receiving nominations for nightlife awards from the fancier side of New York culture in the process.
