A-Trak at MIXX November 29

A-TrakAlan Macklovitch, better known as the master DJ A-Trak, has pretty much had things his own way since winning the DMC World DJ Championship in 1997 at the age of 15. That’s what you call making a career entrance.

Since then, the question isn’t what has the 32-year-old DJ done, it’s what hasn’t he done?

Win all three major DJ competition titles (DMC, ITF and Vestax)? Did that.

Developed his own notation system for scratching? Did that

Started his own record label (Fool’s Gold Records)? Did that too.

Become the personal tour DJ for an act like Kanye West? Uh-huh.

Become a street-wear icon by collaborating with Nike, New Era, Kidrobot, Zoo York and pretty much every other designer getting any notice? Yep.

Produced a ton of hit singles and remixes? That too.

You may be noticing a trend here. Still, A-Trak hasn’t done everything—close, but not yet, However, he will be spinning at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa at MIXX along with Carlos Melange on November 29. The appearance comes just days after the scheduled release of his newest single, Push on November 25.

Halloween Costume Contests at Borgata Nightlife Start Oct. 27

halloween-costume-contestsThere’s a definite art to the perfect Halloween costume. You want to stand out and get noticed, but at the same time you don’t want to wear what everyone else is wearing.

Or maybe you do, which is fine. The sexy nurse, or sexy witch or buff superhero costume always works and usually gets you noticed. But it’s not like the old standbys are going to win a Halloween costume contest on originality are they?

But wait. Costume contest, you ask? Would that be Halloween costume contests at Borgata Nightlife?

Why yes. This year Borgata Nightlife is holding … wait for it … six different Halloween contests at our nightlife venues and giving away cash prizes and overnight stays at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

It starts out at mur.mur Mondays October 27 for a kind of pre-Halloween costume extravaganza. First prize is $1,000 with a second prize of free bottle service and an overnight stay.

On Halloween night—which conveniently is a Friday night this year—Borgata Nightlife has three costume contests with one each at mur.mur, MIXX and Gypsy Bar. First place is $2,500 at MIXX and mur.mur with free bottle service and an overnight stay for second. At Gypsy Bar, first prize is $1,000 with a $250 bar tab and reserved table for second place.

Finally, on Saturday, November 1, MIXX and mur.mur both hold contests again with first place winning $2,500 and free bottle service and an overnight stay for second.

Check out Borgata Nightlife’s full Halloween schedule.

Back to School Party September 20 at MIXX and mur.mur

back-to-school-partyIt’s September, and across the country colleges are back up and running for a new semester. That’s classes, exams, dissertations and long discussions on the existential nature of mankind.

Of course, there’s also a lot of friends, parties and general fun having, which, who knows?, may very well be the existential nature of mankind in the first place. You know, life’s a party.

We at Borgata Nightlife can’t tell you if all of life’s a party, but it certainly helps spruce up the last summer weekend of the season. So, this Saturday, September 20, we’re having a Back to School Party at our nightclubs MIXX and mur.mur.

That includes a $1,000 giveaway—$500 each at each club—to, you know help with books and other college essentials. (You must have a My Borgata Card to enter.  See a nightlife representative at the club to apply.)

Music will be presented by Jesse Marco at mur.mur and Anthony Pisano at MIXX.

The Borgata Nightlife Interview: DJ Ruckus

DJ RuckusMost of Borgata Nightlife’s resident DJ’s are in demand, but how many can claim to be the most sought after DJ in the world?

One—DJ Ruckus.

Well, at least according to GQ, which dubbed him “the most sought after DJ in the world” and it’s pretty easy to see why. DJ Ruckus plays more than 180 shows a year, is a resident DJ in nightclubs around the country including exclusive destinations in New York, Miami, Las Vegas, Atlantic City (at MIXX at Borgata) and Atlanta and has played private shows for celebrities including Adrian Brody, Christina Aguilera, Diddy, Magic Johnson and Steven Tyler.

He also provides the music at exclusive parties for corporate clients including Calvin Klein, PlayStation, Prada and Virgin and fashion shows and film premiers around the world.

It all started when he received some turntables for his 14th birthday. In just a couple of years he was headlining at some of the biggest clubs in his native Miami and playing private parties for Diddy in Morocco.
