Decent comparison, but a copy is all he'll ever be. Lavelle isn't a musician and not incredibly skilled on the decks but his contacts and network destroy Aoki's.

I'd rather be down with Ian Brown, Gilles Peterson, Shadow, Futura, Nigo, etc...than the Good Charlotte twins and Blake Miller (who has to constantly identify himself as from the Moving Units for some reason).

This LA/Entourage/streetwear thing has gotta stop.
