    Well it's the usual genre jumping tricks mate. A good one is to find remixes in both genres/tunes that use the same samples and mixout at the breakdowns with some effects.

    Simple example would be use echo freeze on the outgoing house track at the breakdown and slowly filter in the breakdown in the drum and bass track.

    You could also loop a vocal on the house track and slowly pitch it up whilst shortening the loop and bring in the same vocal from the DnB track whilst lengthening the DnB loop. It's tricky but with some practice and smart effects and filter work it can sound quite good.

    That's, generally, a pretty big BPM jump from House to DnB. The suggestion of Breaks is a good one. There's great housey breaks tracks that gets you to proper breaks which has a similar "aggressive" profile to DnB and gives you a few tracks to up the BPM.

    I'd bridge it with a lighter track that starts with no beat: Inner city life for example. You can fade out the slower tempo track into the pad sounds it starts with. Its a classic that people recognise so they will start thinking "Wait, is this Goldie? Awesome!". The beat/vocals start, you are now up to the tempo you want without anything jarring happening to the mix, and from there you can go into some more modern liquid funk, and build up to something a bit harder/darker depending on the vibe you are looking to take your mix into.

    Switch over with something like Adam F - Circles, perhaps? HPF out the outgoing House track then just start the DnB track?

    I knew i had a good track for this somewhere.

    Mixes well from the original and it's not too punchy for a DnB track.
