Bang or Tao.
If you go the whole 9 yards and master FRKZ with Bang, You more or less have unblockable mixups.

Bang's mix-up is pretty decent; (Unless he's in FRKZ) he has a unblockable command grab, ground overhead, quick lows and strong cross-up potential with j4B. Not to mention the gimmicky bumper set-ups he has.
Pretty much everything you need.
Tao's mix-up isn't very good. All her cross-ups using Drive can be gotten out of and mashed. 2b is a solid low and 6b is meh and 236C is slow as hell. But you can always choose to head into Almost Becoming Two with 50 meter, that's when Tao's mix-up becomes very scary.
I would recommend Bang if your looking for a fast/decent mix-up character that is as awesome as Yosuke.

The most XD.
Taokaka's mixup game is average, nothing really to write home about. But that's not why you play Taokaka.

I'd say Taokaka. Sort of like Yosuke, Tao doesn't get real oki after her combos most of the time. And her mobility from all the jumps/airdashes, drive cancels and cross-ups is probably the most similar to Yosuke being able to do the glide + cross people up, as well as the flips. She also has low health like Yosuke. In my opinion she would be the most similar to Yosuke's playstyle.
Bang can be relatively fast and has the extra air movement as well but doesn't really compare to Tao. FRKZ sort of oneups this but considering the circumstances of it, it might not be what you're really looking for.
Noel is also kind of fast, but not really that "type" of character.
I'd say go with Tao.

I don't know where this myth comes from, but it needs to go the heck away. Noel's dash is completely average. It's the same speed as Ragna's, both at startup and at max. That's pretty much the definition of average. Yes, lots of characters have "slower" dashes (at startup - no one has a slower max dash speed than Noel does) but Tao (faster at start, same max), Bang (Faster at start, MUCH faster at max), Lambda (faster at both), Tsubaki (Faster at both), Mu (faster at both), Makoto (same speed as Bang) are all faster than she is.

Anyway, I agree with everyone else - Tao is technically fastest, but Bang probably plays a little more like Yosuke, and has stronger traditional mixup.

5B "oki" for the win.

Noel's just really small so it comes across as faster. If it was Tager who moved that fast it would still be really easy to hit him so it wouldn't matter as much how fast he was.
