    Default Transitioning from Drumstep to Dubstep?

    Hey guys I have my first show thats going to be on Live speakers (usually i do house shows) and it's a DJ battle so I really wanna WOW the croud with my skills. I want to transition from dubstep to Drumstep (140(70 half time) to 86-90)
    for all you dj's who spin dubstep and drumstep my question is how do you do the transitions?

    thanks for your help!!

    Point of information: Drumstep is technically around 175bpm DnB speed with half time drums, in the same way that Dubstep is 140 with 70bpm drums.

    Sorry, I'm a pedant.

    Oldschool fader slam, turntable fx, pitching down from 175 to 140, echo freeze...

    freeze the dubstep track, let it echo a bit

    have a drumstep track with like 4 beats of epic vocals before the drop (example [dubstep though])
    have the track cued to the start of the vocals.

    then track 1 gets quiet/ when it feels right, play the vocals.
    watch your 'attack' so that it doesnt sound really sudden

    My favorite way to get from drumstep to dubstep is to just play "Yes" by Bassnectar lol. Between the second and third drops the bpm slows down from 174 to 140. I did it in my latest mix http://soundcloud.com/thetower/sweet-sensation-mix at around 38:30
