Best of 2008: Telepathe
Melissa Livaudais, of Brooklyn’s fringe dance duo, Telepathe, celebrates Lil’ Wayne and Warrior Queen.
What was the best album of 2008?
Lil’ Wayne Tha Carter III. So hard-hitting, so much bass and snare. So much Wayne, and still incredibly emotional!
What was the worst album?
I'm betting Nickelback. Not released, but it’s just a feeling. This band makes me want to throw up on myself.
Who was the best DJ of 2008?
Lauren Flax. She just straight-up educates the dancefloor. She fucking rules the house school, o.g. Detroit. Girls take their tops off when she DJs!
What was the best 12" single of 2008?
Warrior Queen & The Heat Wave "Things Change (DJ C Remix)”
What will be big in 2009?
Warrior Queen. She’s best MC in the world, and I believe she is going to take over the world. I am so inspired by her.
