How long have you been spinning as Deuce Manila?
Both: Three years!
Kat: As a duo, two years.
Patti: No, three! Kasi mag-fo-four years na tayo as a couple!
So your relationship came along with your start?
P: She started DJing first.
K: I’ve been a DJ for almost four years. She [Patti] used to be my manager actually, handling my bookings and all that.
How do you guys split the music making?
P: It’s not simple to DJ simultaneously; kasi para siyang may unspoken chemistry. Kami, when we work as a duo, we don’t really plan what to do or play next, it just happens spontaneously.
How do you work well together then?
K: I guess—hmm—what is the secret...
P: Well we’re a couple. And even internationally, most of the DJ or DJ-producer duos are either siblings, twins, or together. Or somehow related!
K: Like Nervo, they’re twins. I think there’s a big relation between having that bond or relationship with someone and working with them. It makes things…not easier, but better.
So would you feel as confident joining something like, let’s say, The Amazing Race?
K: That would be fun! That’s one of our favorite shows!
K: Pwede, ha ha! I think we’re a very competitive couple.
