My version of the 2xLP has a B label on both A and B sides. Can anyone confirm that there is an A label for the release, and possibly scan it?

This is a fantastic album that plays within the genres of Ambient, Dub-Techno, Click -Tech and Minimal. The sonic production is clean, precise and deep. A few of the songs even feel like they belong in the main room of Berghain (e.g. A3: Pull The Strings).
Ozy's real name is Örnólfur Thorlacius and he hails from Iceland. There are so many amazing artist from Iceland, that is is difficult to discover many of them. Ozy's commercial output is not large, but what is available is quality.
It may be said that the amount of sonic diversity on this LP is to much, and that it is hard to get into a particular groove. On side D, I feel the song order is a bit strange because of how different the songs are. They really do not have a binding cohesiveness. Side A and B are prefect, and do not exhibit the same sequential challenge.
Tracks A1 'Klukka' and B3 'Dis-En-Gaged' reminds me of Electric Birds.
The label Force Inc. Music Works put out tons of brilliant music. When you speak of pioneering labels, you would be remiss by not mentioning them and their sister label Mille Plateaux.
Great Music is the most entertaining meditation.

The warm tones and deep bass bits of "Klukka" that open Ozy's debut, TOKEI, are an ambient small hint of what's to come: lovely tech house. "Sagrada Familia," for example, hums to its driving beat, while "Pull The Strings" goes a more minimal route. Ozy loves keeping things varied: "The Key To Music Is Mo(n/k)ey" definitely has its fingers in microhouse, while "Work/Money/Alcohol/Sleep/Work/Pudding" goes deep, and "Dis-En-Gaged" takes on a light trance-like feel. "Timendurancelevatorock" returns to the minimal, though darker this time, and "Gin And (Bi/T)onic" bounces to its own spry rhythm. And not surprisingly, "Drama Club" closes the album on more ambience. A really strong showing.

Force Inc continues with its revolutionary task of producing tasteful albums of the best in microhouse, minimal techno and deep tech-house. Ozy's Tokei is no exception. Through 12 tracks, this islandian (sic) keeps a fresh vibe of Eno-esque ambiences mixed with very danceable patterns and some percussive impressions made out of glitches and microsamplings, more in a Mille Plateaux vibe.
Microhouse at its finest.
