Minus’ minimal queen, Magda, on new school perms and soulless techno.

Who was your favorite DJ in 2008?

Patrick Russell. He has great track selection and a unique style. I especially love his slow tracky techno sets.

What was the best 12" single of 2008?

Stimming “The Anger.” I love this slow-building Moodymann-like groove.

What was the best style trend of 2008?

The new eco-perm and sustainable jheri curl. It’s modern-day Sheila E glam without the ’80s damage. You get all the hype with no hassle.

What was the worst style trend of 2008?

Crocs, especially Crocs with charms. They're kind of disturbing, like clowns in a children's hospital.

What was the best music trend of 2008?

The Eastern bloc vogueing underground. What do you think jump-started the house revival?

What was the worst music trend of 2008?

Tika tika tika tika techno. Too much swing and too little funk.
