Explosion Robinson is an award-winning audio post-production studio based in Ridgewood, Queens.  We produce original music, sound design and sonic identities for clients in advertising, television, film and digital media. Some of our clients include Nickelodeon, Vh1, Viacom Velocity, Intel, Grey, Hasbro, Argo, and Esteé Lauder.   

We work with our partners in a collaborative manner, helping to create and curate the sound of projects, and to ensure maximum quality across all platforms. From sound design and mixing, to voiceover casting and original music, consider us a one-stop shop for all your audio needs.


The studio is a hybrid of analog and digital, because sometimes technology from the past does the job better. We use analog gear and hardware for signal flow, for warmth, character, and harmonics; software for precision, synergy, and recallability. The studio has an array of seven speakers to monitor mixes, giving more points of reference revealing how a mix will sound, or a song will be heard; on a laptop or a sound bar, a Bluetooth speaker, or a home theater. Our studio is a fully floated and isolated mix room that is designed to keep focus on the accuracy of the mixes.


Stephen Hermann is an award-winning sound designer, music producer, and mixer with over 20 years experience in the industry. Since founding Explosion Robinson in 2004, he has created the sonic signature for multiple television networks, produced music for hundreds of commercials, and sound designed and mixed thousands more. He works regularly with producers, directors, agencies and brands tell their stories and engage viewers by making the content sound the best it can.

When not in the studio maneuvering about his current projects, Stephen can be found listening to records, field recording wherever he is vacationing with his wife and daughter, and searching for more additions to his ever expanding record collection.
