Joe Hahn (of Linkin Park) was a guest DJ on Saturday at Haze. The nightclub, in the basement of the Aria on the Las Vegas Strip, caters primarily to radio-friendly dance music with a revved BPM. So it was a noticeable and immediate shift in tone when Hahn took the reins at 12:30am. He massaged Linkin Park’s nu metal vibe with techno and only the occasional nod to pop or dance. Hahn infused a mix of songs ranging from the Go-Go’s Our Lips Our Sealed, LL Cool J’s Mama Said Knock You Out and a extremely deconstructed take on Pumped Up Kicks from Foster the People. Hahn’s approach was sublimely artful – probably not a common thing in a Las Vegas nightclub – and controlled but it lacked the invitation to dance that drew the crowd into Haze to begin with.
