By | Uncategorized | No Comments
Billboard 'Batman v Superman' (and 'Mad Max' and 'Deadpool') Composer Tom Holkenborg on His Method and Massive Year By Gil Kaufman Tom Holkenborg (aka Junkie XL) could have been another Stereo MCs or Prodigy: a one-(or two) hit electronica wonder from the '90s whose career peaked before quickly flaming out.
