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.
