When you play a song that is a lot different than the previous, you should not even try to sync and fade them because especially with rap and house it can end in a disaster.
You can try to use half time songs (try to mix Animals with Dark Horse, it works pretty good!) That have the "same speed" but half beats.
If the next track has a BPM that you can not mix no matter how hard you try, you should consider letting the first song end and then using some samples / effects to break the rythm and play the other song. For instance you can use the backspin fx to achieve this effect of "breaking the rythm" without annoying the crowd.
