Tom Holkenborg (born 8 December 1967) (known by his stage name as Junkie XL and occasionally JXL) is a Dutch multi-instrumentalist, composer, DJ, producer, and engineer. He uses the name JXL in cases where the term "Junkie" might cause offense. Holkenborg says of his name: "I called myself Junkie XL from the point of view that once you're completely overworked, you never want to go there again. The 'XL' stands for expanding limits; broadening up your vision." Originally known for his trance productions, he has moved to producing electronica and big beat music and film scores in recent years.
