Vancouver's DJ Imanos isn't new to this; he's true to this. Over the last few years, he's really stepped up, getting the support of figures like John Dahlback (who signed his single "I'll Wait For You" to his Mutants Records imprint, gaining support from Pete Tong, among others) and Jay-Z's Life + Times site, who asked ImanoS to cook up a trap mix ("Trapped in Brooklyn") that debuted earlier this year. His own original production ranges from house to trap, and with Miami currently playing host to the Ultra Music Festival and Miami Music Week, he cooked up a special "Miami Turn Up" Chart, a top 10 of tracks he's sure will set things off in lovely Miami, FL.

In addition to cooking up this surefire top 10, Imanos even did DAD the honor of dropping a sick mini-mix, featuring some of the tracks in his chart, as well as some special bits - including one sneaky, unidentified jam. Whether you're in Miami about to get turnt or trying to make due by turning your room into your own private rave, this chart and mini-mix have got you covered!

10. John Dish - "Karmma"

Not Available Interstitial

One of the best house tracks I've heard in a LONG time! The crowd reaction to this one is huge. I expect this to be one of the big Miami tracks. Really hot minimal drop that makes you want to go crazy every time you hear it.

09. KAOS - "Come Alive"

Not Available Interstitial

Great feel good vocal trap from UK newcomer, KAOS. His bass on this record is unreal. Picked him to do the official remix for my recently released single with Faustx Featuring Noosa, "Moonlight." Definitely think this guy is one to look out for this year.

08. Rihanna - "Stay (Branchez Bootleg)"

Not Available Interstitial

Wasn't familiar with Branchez before this, but DAMN dude came out in a big way. Great arrangement is so key to remixes/bootlegs like this. I wasn't a huge fan of the original, this mix kills it though. So playable so happy like Ri says in the track hands in the air!

07. Usher x Diplo - "Go Missin (J-LAH Remix)"

Not Available Interstitial

I love love love the orignal. Anything Usher or Diplo is pretty much gold. J-LAH took the best elements in the original and just made it a huge club banger.

06. Morgan Page & Nadia Ali - "Carry Me (Nilson & The 8th Note Remix)"

Not Available Interstitial

One of my favorite vocal big room house tracks this year. Great melodic remix I'm sure will be played out at the festivals all summer. I'm hooked on it at the moment.

05. Drake - "Started From The Bottom"

Not Available Interstitial

This one is fire If I've ever heard it. No doubt the biggest hiphop track of 2013 so far. Nothing can set a club off right now like this. Drake definitely brought his game on this track and that hook is so universal everyone can get with it.

04. Ciara - "Body Party"

Not Available Interstitial

Obsessed with this track. Have literally been playing it on repeat since it came out a few days ago. Mike WiLL Made It is the hottest producer in the world right now. He kills it on the harder tracks and on softer records like this. Ciara is back and the sampling on this is fantastic as well. Looking forward to her new album now hopefully sooner than later!

03. AlunaGeorge - "Attracting Flies (Shift K3Y Remix)"

Not Available Interstitial

Shift K3Y is one of my fav producers at the moment. He's got his own unique style. Been playing his Sisqo and Destiny's child remixes a lot, but think this new one a remix of AlunaGeorge's new, "Attracting Flies" is his best work yet.

02. Faustix & Imanos ft. Noosa - "Moonlight"

Not Available Interstitial

A track thats been in the works for quite some time. A collab with one of my favorite people to work with, Noosa. It's a big room house meets trap sort of track with a very unique drop and Noosa's airy vocals. I think it works real well for any crowd.

01. Lana Del Rey - "Summertime Sadness (Ryan Hemsworth Remix)"

Not Available Interstitial

Canadians are killing it right now. Ryan Hemsworth can seriously do no wrong. I was big into Cedric Gervais' mix, but I loved how Ryan totally flipped this track. Great drum programming on this remix. Ryan Hemsworth is a force I think he'll be a big name to look out for and I'm excited to listen to his upcoming album!
