With great excitement, we welcome Jonathan Toubin and New York Night Train to Ground Control Touring.
Juxtaposing raw, wild, and uncommon original 7-inch vinyl sides by unsung artists on the beat 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.
While best known for throwing the world’s most popular and prolific soul party, the Soul Clap and Dance-Off, and NYC’s biggest and longest-running weekly rock’n’roll dance, Shakin’ All Over Under Sideways Down!, he’s also spent the last decade turning over 2000 gigs at hundreds of nightclubs, art spaces, all-ages warehouses, afterhours, rock concerts, and dozens of major music festivals on five continents – from Bonnaroo to Benicassim, from Tasmania to Tel Aviv. Meanwhile, back in the States, reimagining the map, creating its own continental circuit for a new demographic, and hitting it hard over a decade, Thee Clap broke barriers coast to coast to become America’s only touring 21st Century soul shindig. The low-fi spectacle is also the first DJ party with its own entire night at Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night’s Swing and the first DJ party with an entire night of official South By Southwest showcases – and has remained the conference’s official closing party for six years. New York Night Train’s Soul Proprietor is also the first 45 DJ with Burger Records cassettes and the first living DJ with compilations on the legendary Norton Records – with five Souvenirs of the Soul Clap LPs released internationally the last couple of years.
2017 is off to a roaring start with the Soul Clap and Dance-Off celebrating its 10th Anniversary weekly in metropolises around North America and Europe and an all-live version of the dance party featuring Irma Thomas, Archie Bell, Joe Bataan, David Johansen, Maxine Brown, King Khan, Young Jessie, Baby Washington, Jon Batiste, Nick Waterhouse, Ural Thomas, and a 12-piece all-star band performing the DJ’s favorite tracks.
Stay tuned to his artist page for news and forthcoming tour dates!
