Objects & Sounds | Mood List | Marionette

2024 marks 10 years of Marionette, a Toronto-based label which has carved out a special place on our shelves and expanded our listening experiences with its wide array of exploratory sounds.


To mark the occasion, on Sunday, July 28th, we’re having a special Marionette showcase in store, hosted by label founder Ali Safi with live sets from MinaeMinae and David Edren. Ali will also play music under his DJ moniker grimwig before, during, and after the concerts.


Entrance is free, and the first concert will start at 15:00.


Looking forward to joining us? Let us know if you’re coming:

What to expect

Live performance by MinaeMinae

MinaeMinae is multidisciplinary artist Bastian Epple. In his hands, musical material takes on the essence of documentary footage which he would cut up, repitch, and rearrange freely. Nontypical rhythms and colourful synthetic and analogue sounds take you off the well-trodden path and into a landscape that brims with novelty and sounds that move with vivacity.

Live performance by David Edren

Artist and composer David Edren’s collage of music and creative projects hold a reverence for flora and fauna, undertones of meditative restraint, and a carefully crafted sense of beauty. Conceptual ideas come to life in fluid, calming synth melodies.

DJ set by grimwig

Grimwig aka Ali Safi is label founder of Marionette. Ali relies on intuition to form a dialogue bridging the disparate worlds that inspire a growing catalogue of oddball releases. Under his grimwig moniker, he carefully selects and blends records into seamless mixes suited for beanbag ambient nights all the way to the smokey afterhours.
