I wonder if the main melody of this record was inspired or influenced by U.T.F.O. ‎- Hanging Out? Probably not. But I felt an itch I needed to scratch.

Haha! Thanks for the pointer. Yeah I'm way off! I'm sure there's an acid line on a 'Rockin House' track similar in timbre and sequence to this one as well. Maybe they've also sampled it from the Italo Disco track you've linked to above. I think a Dutch ... See full review

Either Jinny - Keep Warm was circulating long before its general release date of 1991, which is possible of course. Or this artist sampled the vocal from somewhere else as this particular record (Hot / Hotter) was 100% doing the rounds from late 1990. ... See full review
