Don't bother.

not possible if bpm are randomly different, (well it can but it will sound fucking shit) without using effects or messing around with breakdowns or something.

it can be done with bpm that are exactly half (ie one track at 140 the other at 70, and as long as they are 4/4) just mix at the half beat

This...like Drum and Bass + Hip Hop

As for going from house tempo to hip hop/brokenbeat tempo, has to be a sneaky fade with a beatless intro/outro or in a breakdown, when the beats are there, it's damn near impossible aside from well timed cold hard cuts/scratch drops
Pete Gordon - Deep and Low

Slower tempo but still with balls, deephouse, slow-mo, futurehouse, nudeep, indie, nudisco, hints of progressive, whatever the fuck you want to call it, just good shit! Get on it

If you're feeling creative, make your own edit which combines the two.

You can make a selection of these "go to" edits, that you may use during your sets.

Here is a good example of a tech. house tune, changing into the drum 'n' bass number, by James Zabiela.

Hence why you don't really hear much drum n bass in a techno set or house in a dubstep set... The BPMs are too different, and unless you're an eclectic sratch DJ, I wouldn't bother - except of course at a house party, where who the fuck cares!

Simplified BPM guide... (and yes some tracks break the rules, shut up)

70 - 80 - Dub reggae / Hip hop / Dubstep / Trip Hop etc

80 - 90 - Some Hiphop

90 - 110 - bit of a weird place, sometimes they'll be some ambienty stuff, downtempo, glitch, very slow disco...

110 - 124 - Slower House and Hiphop, some proggy psy, electro

124 - 132 - Most House / Techno / Prog

132 - 145 - Trance / Techno / Psy / Breaks / Dubstep / Hard Dance

145 - 160 - Stupidly fast psy / Breaks / Hard Dance

160 - 170 - Another Grey area...

170 - 184 - Drum n Bass

DnB or Dubstep will go well with hiphop, dubstep works with psy, techno and breaks are always good mates... but yeah house and DnB is just too different to make good mixes, especially earlier on.

you could mix breakdowns when there is no beat in either tune... you don't have to be a scratch DJ.

Or mix a DnB remix into the original house tune
