DJ Manny Lehman creates an energetic non-stop mix from the club tracks featured on Showtime's TV series Queer As Folk. Vocal-driven, progressive house-tinged diva fare (Elle Patrice's "Rising," Kim English's "Everyday," Deborah Cox's "Absolutely Not") sets the tone; other highlights include Etta James' confident cover of the Rolling Stones' "Miss You" and Kosheen's deliciously dark "Hide U." The set missteps when Pete Heller's house-infused remix of Daft Punk's "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" saps the track of its robotic tension, but his expanded mix of the Chemical Brothers' "Star Guitar" soon revives the disc's energy. Most of the songs are familiar hits, but Lehman's seamless mixing makes the collection worthwhile; the beat never stops, and the reasonably timed cuts never overstay their welcome.—WH
