Backwash

Detroit's White Stripes will save your savage soul.

Since we're discussing club events that reference the mouth, why not one that's named for candy? The Chocolate Factory is the latest weekly gig to spring from the hip-hop-obsessed brain of Francois Baptiste and his associates at 3 Deep Productions and ENT. Every Thursday night at Bash (19th and Blake), Baptiste and a crew that includes DJs Big Daddy Rallo and Shawn Blaze spin old- and new-school hip-hop, R&B and dancehall reggae. It's a yummy mix, all right, one that returns a welcome dose of hip-hop culture to a sanitized LoDo. But that's not all Baptiste is up to: La Rumba is his newish Wednesday- and Friday-night fete at the midtown club of the same name; each week, DJs Tony V, Javio and Chonz spin hip-hop, house and Latin grooves for the loco crowd. Baptiste is also hosting a new radio show -- The Mix Tape Show -- with rapper Kingdom and DJ Chonz; the program airs Sunday nights at 11 p.m. on KS/FM 107.5. It's fun to watch Monsieur Baptiste take Denver's hip-hop community to deeper places.
