You can get the lowdown on an artist’s current happenings and read plenty of juicy gossip about them at way too many other places on the interweb; but we’re not having any of that here. Instead, ‘The Count-Off’ aims to reveal a never-before-seen side of the top dance music names on our radar, by inviting them to share five songs, four things, three albums, two people and one wish.

With a career spanning more than 20 years, Chocolate Puma have been in the dance music game longer than some of the scene’s fans have been alive. Zki and Dobre have gone by numerous aliases during their musical journey; it was under the moniker the Good Men they released “Give It Up” in 1993, which reached #1 on the US Dance Chart and #5 on the UK Singles Chart. In 2011, they revisited the hit tune with a re-edit under their current alias, Chocolate Puma. It is under this name that they released their latest single “I Could Be Wrong,” a heavy dance floor hitter tailor-made for the summer. Insomniac picked the duo’s brain with Count-Off, and here’s what we learned.

5 songs we wish we’d made:

Prince “When Doves Cry”
