Diggin’ This: Sault – “Don’t Waste My Time” (Forever Living Originals)
No time-wasters please.
Instantly infectious and incessantly grooving, listening to “Don’t Waste My Time” is time well spent.
The song is the second single from Sault, a trio that features London-based musician Dean “Inflo” Josiah Cover (writer of DanDigs.com audio mainstays “Black Man in a White World” by Michael Kiwanuka, “House in LA” by Jungle, “Offence” by Little Simz, and many, many more). It’s released via Forever Living Originals, an independent label that counts Melisa Young among its cohort, better known as Chicago rapper Kid Sister (whose Kanye-featuring “Pro Nails” was a bonafide smash upon its release in 2011, as was the track’s magnificently massive Rusko remix).
“Don’t Waste My Time” is a rolling, retro-tinged jam with a radioactive core, salted with handclaps, vocal chants, an impossibly funky bassline, and, my favorite part, a battery acid guitar lick that perfectly mirrors the melody of the song’s sung title during the chorus.

“Don’t Waste My Time” is out now. Listen to it incessantly, then listen to their previous and equally brilliant debut single, “We Are the Sun.”
