    This is how I'd do it. The folks who came for the band are going to want to pee as soon as the band's set is over, then get a drink and talk to their friends a little before they're ready to dance again. That's okay! Play some lower-keyed stuff for a while to let them gradually acclimate to your style, then bring the energy level back up.
    I play house music!

    I would suggest using a lot of flanger

    The rock crowd loves flanger

    I would do something like this as well, ease them into it, them blast them!

    I remember back in the day bands would hire me to play music in between their sets, some of them would get pretty angry when more people were dancing during their breaks than when they were playing!

    Play what fits with the bands style, so it's a smooth transition of genres. I don't think you should worry about BPM. Just press play when they're done.

    Shit I go right into psytrance do harmonic and bpm drop down to some disco and build back up since you have time to kill and especially since unless your a industrial? Rock band electronic music of any sort will likely filter out crowd
