JONATHAN TOUBIN (New York)
American DJ, record producer, musician, writer, and historian. He is the founder and proprietor of the New York Night Train event production company. Heralded “The most-liked man in the soul music scene” by Rolling Stone and “New York’s best DJ” and “the only DJ we actually like” by VICE, Toubin is best known for his energetic dance party sets consisting of tightly juxtaposed obscure 1950s and 1960s Rhythm and blues, rock and roll, and soul 45s. New York Times describes the DJ’s fare as “cleaner and more appreciative of American pop music history than much of the rest.”. He is also known for his New York Night Train parties and their role in “revamping the entire landscape of New York and Brooklyn from midnight till the after hours” in what the Village Voice describes as “his own kind of dance revolution”. His best known event is the New York Night Train Soul Clap and Dance-Off, which has been called “the most popular soul dance party in the world” by SXSW. It is the only soul dance party to have had an entire night dedicated to it at Lincoln Center Midsummer Night Swing and at SXSW, and plays in dozens of international markets and major festivals annually plus monthly at the Brooklyn Bowl. In over 1600 gigs since 2007, Toubin has appeared in hundreds of night clubs. In 2014, Toubin was voted Best New York DJ in the Village Voice Reader’s Choice Contest. He currently has DJ compilations available on Burger Records and Norton Records.

Bloodshot Bill (Montreal)
From his first self-released album in 2001, through sixteen more, over thirty singles, and collaborations with the likes of King Khan, Mark Sultan, Jon Spencer, Deke Dickerson, and the 126.96.36.199’s, Bloodshot Bill has parlayed his unique blend of rockabilly, R&B and garage rock into feverishly prolific productions that tap into the very roots of mutant rock’n’roll. As his reputation has grown, Bloodshot Bill has been deemed a rockabilly wildman, a primitive, a seminal punk, a throwback to the wild ‘50s, and the deranged spirit of psychobilly madness. His latest album, Psyche-o-Billy, which will be released on Goner Records on November 24, 2023, exudes raw energy and authenticity via a frenzied, stripped down soundscape that defies all rules and descriptions.
A giant in the rockabilly/sleaze underworld, thrilling crowds around the world for over two decades!
