The glorious Rezerection of TTF

In the 90s, Rezerection was the place to be for those in the know in Scotland. The legendary rave night attracted clubbers the length and breadth of the country and further afield to the The Royal Highland Centre in Ingleston. Although different in style, it was our Hacienda as far as underground kudos was concerned.

Universally referred to as Rez, it was where the likes of QFX, Ultra-Sonic, Q-Tex and The Prodigy (in their rave days) cut their teeth before the venue closed its doors in 1997. But undoubtedly the most treasured – and least dated – act to establish themselves there was TTF.

When you consider that The Time Frequency have sold a jaw-dropping 2.5 million singles, it effectively makes them one of most successful groups in Scottish music history, despite their relative obscurity outwith the dance community.

A few years ago TTF main man Jon Campbell headed up a consortium which bought Rezerection, and he has since set about reinvigorating a brand that still gives 30-somethings a giddy but hazy memory of their youth.

Nostalgia can only go so far, though, and the hard part will be tapping into new markets. But with TTF set to unleash their Dominator 2 album and going on the road with live performances of their hits, perhaps a whole new generation of Rez heads will soon be converted.
