Why not?

Problems may arize if the BPMs are too far away from each other, e.g, if the prog track is 135pm and the full-on track is 147 bpm you will have to to do some extreme time stretching, not sure it will sound good. I once heard my own proggy track (137 bpm) in a full-on set where it was played around 143, TBH it sounded horrible.

thank you so much, i'm having my first gig and fraking out. preparing set for 7 hours...  i have several questions i'll be so thankful if you could answer: 

1. Do you mix your tracks in key? And if so do you use circle of fifths to change the key?

2. Are you getting ready cue points for buildups and etc? And what soft do you use?

3. And if you’re first dj to start, do you start with an ambient track or straight with intense basseline and kick with longer intro?

4. what’s bpm range you use( example: start 135bpm and end set to 145 ? )

Sorry, I'm not into DJing myself. For what I know, it makes sense to group your tracks so that the nearby ones would have similar tempo if you want to avoid timestretching atrifacts. Cicle of fifth makes perfect sense to me. 

Starting a set from 135 and going to 145 in the end seems typical, many mixes on mixcloud etc seem to follow this pattern.

Using an ambient track for an intro is up to you. Again, why not?

thank you, yeah you're right, it's not an office job to be into frames.

Even though mixing in key will all but guarantee your transition will sound musical without any clashing of notes, its still entirely possible to create great sounding mash ups while not following the key compatibility chart but youd have to have prior knowledge of how the two tracks sound together to avoid a train wreck mix.. which would make it a crap shoot to perform a "freestyle" session where you basically are picking tracks at random and only going off the bpm compatibility because youre bound to have two tracks that have no business being played together find their way to your decks. 

But you really should be making it a priority to mix in key whenever possible because its the correct way to mix and will make you look like a professional. 

As far as the intro track....

Since its a live event and not a set that was designed to be recorded for home listening, i would advise against using an ambient or down tempo intro because people are there to dance. But if youre clever or creative enough to pull off a short intro thats a maximum of 30-45 seconds and is comprised of either spoken word, sound effects, or anything that will sucessfully grab peoples attention, draw them in, excite them, and then build up into a climatic drop of the downbeat of your first track.... You just might make a few fans or 100 that night.
