Tom Holkenborg (born December 8, 1967), better known as Junkie XL or occasionally JXL, is a Dutch multi-instrumentalist, 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." Biography: Early years: XL was born in Lichtenvoorde, Gelderland, Netherlands.
