I've heard some mixes over the years where people just do teases for the sake of it.

Imagine what your mixing would be like if you never met me
I think tracks such as DJ Friendly Unit Shifter are ideal for 3 deck mixes. The reduction of bass modulation and the introduction of melodic elements/pads after 32 bars that lasts for 16 then straight back into the rowdyness for another 32. This enables you to bring in another track during that 16 which will drop work well with the next 32.
Floating Zero is another good example
the way cyantific mixes on three decks is basically the way I tend to follow.
have two tunes doubling...let the mix roll out, 32 bars is the norm for 2 deck mixes really, but he could have 2 tunes rolling up until 64 bars after the first drop.
while all this is going on, get the next tune cued. double on the next breakdown with either one of the current tunes you have in the mix.
at all times 2 tunes only! 3 tunes at once can sound really clashy IMO.
