And that’s why we’ve been introducing you to them on this blog with our trademark set of “introduce you to our DJs” set of questions.
Well, today, we have something special. We’re going to introduce you to two—count’em two—of our resident DJs.
Really, the two just decided they wanted to work together. They’re both resident DJs here at mur.mur and they just said “Hey, let’s jam together.” No other reason.
Still, for Borgata Nightlife lovers it’s a chance to check out two of our finest DJs in one spectacular night.
DJ M.O.S. is a fixture in the New York scene and a regular at A-list events. M.O.S. can be regularly heard playing at exclusive clubs in New York, Las Vegas, Miami, Los Angeles, Paris, Norway and Japan. He currently holds his residences at Miami mega club LIV at The Fontainebleau, mur.mur at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, and New York hotspots Avenue, Simyone Lounge, Greenhouse, TenJune and Marquee.
DJ Kiss you know from her numerous TV appearances and because DJ Kiss does it all. She’s spun private parties in Hollywood for the some of the world’s biggest celebrities and added her signature sound to the hottest fashion, music, corporate and charity events. Frequently tapped by media outlets for her vast musical knowledge, DJ Kiss has appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” VH1’s “Big Morning Buzz Live,” MTV’s “The Seven” as the resident DJ and on NBC’s “The Today Show.”
Here’s a quick conversation with both of them, courtesy of Borgata Nightlife.

Favorite Lyrics? “I woke up early on my born day, I’m 20, it’s a blessing. The essence of adolescence leaves my body, now I’m fresh and my physical frame is celebrated cause I made it. One quarter through life some Godly like thing created.” – Nas Illmatic
