M for Montreal’s M4Mikey reports on Toronto’s mega music festival.
New York DJ and famed 45 crate-digger Jonathan Toubin returns to Montreal this Saturday for Soul Clap and Dance-Off at Divan Orange. Toubin will be spinning long-forgotten ’60s soul and boogaloo classics and presiding over a dance contest along with local celebrity judges.
His ever-growing collection of 45s — which includes a fair bit of Quebec content he’s picked up here during previous visits — consists of songs so rare, he’s been given the title of “Unshazamable,” meaning even the all-knowing music IDing app can’t identify his golden oldies.
Although he won’t be breaking out the local stuff for this Saturday’s soul-centric event, he actually assembled a mostly French-language mix called Polyglot Discotheque, which you can listen to here.
