Unveiling ‘She’s in Parties’: Destar Conteh’s Story of Escape

Alrighty, so, there’s this new artist, Destar Conteh, who’s just dropped a track called “She’s in Parties.” It’s pretty heavy stuff, talking about people using parties and drugs to escape their problems. The song’s got two different viewpoints – someone who cares and someone who’s just there for the fun.

Destar’s got an interesting backstory. He didn’t have much guidance growing up, so music became his thing. Started with heavy metal, then got into hip hop and R&B. You can hear a bit of The Weeknd’s influence in his style.

His music’s got this sinking feeling to it – kinda dark, you know? He’s juggling music with other stuff in his life, but he’s really into telling stories through his songs. Sounds like he’s got more singles coming and he’s working on an EP too. Definitely one to watch.

I find inspiration in the experiences from my past and people I know. I tend to blend the stories together to create the narrative I want to portray.

What was the role of music in the early years of your life?
Growing up, I didn’t have much guidance. I had to learn and experience a lot on my own and it made me feel alone. After a while I started to listening to music, mainly heavy metal since that’s what I grew up round because my mom. Then I found hip hop and R&B and I started to kinda put myself into the lives of these artists I was listening to so that I didn’t have to deal with my own life. Music was one of the main things that gave me an escape.

Are you from a musical or artistic family?
I’m not

Who inspired you to be a part of the music industry?
My friend. He had been making beats for a few years, releasing music and one day we just started talking about making music together since we both wanted to but didn’t have the support on it.

How did you learn to sing/write/to play?
I learned to sing in high school I was in choir for half a year and just ran with that. I didn’t learn how to produce my own songs till a few months after I graduated school and that took me about 7 or 8 months to teach myself.

What was the first concert that you ever went to and who did you see perform?
First concert I ever went to was a Korn concert it was cool.

How could you describe your music?
I’d want to describe my music as sinking. I want the beat in combination with my vocals to give this feeling of dread in a way that reflects the lyrics and tone I want to set

Describe your creative process.
I don’t really think I have one. I can go weeks without having any ideas or creativity till it randomly hits me usually late at night.

What is your main inspiration?
My main inspiration would be that darkness of some peoples life. The pain and struggles and the vices that help with those pain and struggles

A artist I find myself admiring the most would be The Weeknd. unlike other artists where I would put myself into their life, I felt like I was more so sharing experiences with him in a way as if we were noth talking about our pain and what helps.

Did your style evolve since the beginning of your career?
I would say my style did evolve and will continue to evolve for as long as I’m making music. I started out on typical hip hop beats not knowing exactly where I was going until I was able to find myself and my style.

I don’t really think about what can be competition at the moment.

I really like movies. I love watching old horror movies on youtube and like new horror movies on netflix or something.

I’d want a job in education but specifically somewhere in my community. Maybe even start a program for some of the’s kids who’s parents can’t always be around to teach them what they need.

What is the biggest problem you have encountered in the journey of music?
My biggest problem I want to say is the balancing of life and music. At this time I still have to focus on jobs and life stuff but that moment when I finally get a leveled head and inspiration is what reminds me that I can’t give up.

If you could change one thing in the music industry, what would it be?
Probably the appreciation. A lot of artists I think don’t get enough appreciation when it comes to their accomplishments.
