I don't think ive ever heard anybody fade in tbh! id say that wasn't cheesy at all more 'experimental' haha (to use that word shitly)
don't worry about it too much would be my advice. sometimes when youre making your own music you can over think things that you wouldn't think twice about if you heard it somewhere else. 'just coming in' is how it goes 99% of the time isn't it? a tiny warning usually helps the transition - use the hats 2 beats before the drums kick in for example
Have you tried writing some kind of fill to introduce the beat? You can also introduce different percussive parts over several bars. Like maybe start with just hats, then drop in your main elements.
yes i tried to fade in and out noise and\or chord and introduce beat at volume peak(of noise) bit it still sounds choppy, About starting with hats, i use drum loop(wav)
and also what about introducing after drop ? piano part is too tight to introduce partially
 i also have same problems with silencing beat

So, have you tried writing your own drums? I think you are going to have an issue if you are using a really full drum loop. You might also try listening to some early Jungle music where they were just chopping Funk and Soul breaks on samplers, in those tunes the beat pretty much "just drops in" but much of the music is still very good.
Have you tried open and closing a low pass filter on the drums?
for example song starts with synth or pad, how to introduce beat, fading in sounds cheesy, starting straightforward is even worse
Filters can sound nice for example i do like to start a dnb track with just a pad or a piano most of the time and what i like to do to build towards the beat is to low pass filter automation a couple breaks and then bring in the main body of the drums after.
