The Time Frequency (TTF) are an electronic dance group from Scotland.

The band was founded by Jon Campbell in 1990. They are one of Scotland's first techno groups.

Mary Kiani was the lead singer of TTF, then Debbie Millar, then Layla Amini and currently Lorena Dale. The Time Frequency play gigs all over the United Kingdom, mainly in Scotland. In Scotland they usually play at Barrowlands and Rezerection.

During the 1990s, they had chart success with a number of hit singles, amongst which the biggest were "The Ultimate High", "New Emotion" and "Real Love" (the last named of which, after a remix, reached number 8 in the UK Singles Chart.[1]

History[edit]

Jon Campbell was a member of the synthpop band, Thru The Fire from 1988 to 1990, when he left the band to form The Time Frequency. Their first release was the White Label EP, "Futurama". In 1992 the band released "Real Love" through the record label Jive Records. They released more singles and EPs until 1994, when they released their first album, Dominator, which included many of the singles that had been released prior to 1994.

Due to the fact that Jive Records would not pay session singer Mary Kiani enough money to be a full-time member of the act, this resulted in Mary no longer being hired by The Time Frequency, In 1994 she was replaced with Debbie Millar, a singer from Bournemouth. Debbie sung "Dreamscape '94", TTF's two singles with Tom Wilson released in 1998 and 1999 respectively and most songs from Dominator 2.

A best of album was released on 7 May 2007, titled TTF – The Ultimate Collection. It included many of TTF's most popular songs along with some covers. They released the follow-up to their 1994 album, Dominator, in 2008 titled Dominator 2. Its charting position in Scotland is unknown. No singles were released from Dominator 2. In the late-2000s, Debbie Millar retired and left the band. She was replaced by Layla Amini, a singer from London. After a few years, TTF made a return to playing concerts.

As of January 2014, The Time Frequency are now recording a new album. It is currently unknown when the album will be released.

The Time Frequency released the single "I Can Feel It" on 31 August 2015 with the video posted to The Time Frequency's YouTube channel on 30 September 2015. It made its debut on Radio Clyde in June 2015.
