Joe Hahn should by now be a familiar name to HYPEBEAST readers, owing to his storied career as American rock group Linkin Park‘s DJ and programmer. Building on his experience directing some of Linkin Park’s most viewed music videos, with “Numb” having racked up close to a staggering 185 million views on YouTube alone, Joe Hahn has written and directed the soon-to-be-released film MALL which will be his feature-length directorial debut. In lieu of the film, Hahn recently curated an art show at KNOWN Gallery in Los Angeles inviting prominent creatives to come together and reinterpret the themes portrayed in MALL. His Essentials certainly reflect his many creative identities at the current moment: a handheld viewfinder helps Hahn envision a potential scene and pick a suitable lens when out shooting, whilst an array consisting of a synthesizer, DJ controller, electric keyboard, and headphones comprise Hahn’s music-making arsenal. Among his daily essentials include his Porter wallet, Patek Philippe watch designed for multiple timezones, a Sharpie for autographs and tagging, and hand sanitizer for all the handshaking. A multipurpose butterfly knife and Linkin Park backstage pass round out the selection, all of which is stored in a handy folio bag by KILLSPENCER. Additionally, nunchakus serve as an homage to Bruce Lee’s posthumous 1978 film Game of Death. For more on Joe Hahn’s current creative ventures and art show, read our roundtable discussion with him hereMALL will be released in the U.S. on October 17.
