In 2002, Dutch producer Tom Holkenborg, a.k.a. Junkie XL, remixed Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" for a Nike commercial that aired during the World Cup. The single eventually became a No. 1 dance hit in 28 countries. Since then, Junkie XL has gone on to remix songs for bands such as Coldplay and to score music for commercials, video games and movies. In support of his new album, Today, Junkie XL is stopping by the Meridian to spin the funky techno, blitzed-out electro and straight-up rock jams that have earned him his reputation as one of the world's most energetic dance DJs. We're sure somewhere, a fried-peanut-butter-and-banana-sandwich-eating Elvis will be shaking his ass. Randall Jones and a slew of local beatmeisters open.
