Good dancehall reggae songs?

With summer approaching, I'm in the mood to make a dancehall comp. I've got a limited knowledge of this genre, so I'd like to get a few recommendations.

A few years ago, my college roommate turned me onto a comp called "Buyaka," which is great. Cutty Ranks' "Open Up" is a great song.

Anyway, I've already got a few tracks from Chaka Demus & Pliers, Supercat, Mr. Vegas, and a couple of others. Any good song recommendations?

Okay, so I never got around to making my dancehall comp. Since the time that I posted this, I've completely fallen off of the reggae scene. What's some good current dancehall?

Thanks! I put 2003 (the only one they had) on the reserve list at the public library.

I'm a fan of Wayne Wonder. His music is a little more R&B than dancehall, but it has that feel.

Shaggy did a killer remake of Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" that was awesome

Thanks again for the heads-up on this one. It's great!

Funnily enough, this is the first CD that I've gotten from the library that has a sticker that says "This disc is kept at the circulation desk." I guess they were taking the CD booklet at it's word ("raw...x-rate dancehall").
