DDT was founded in November of 2006 by Douglas Colon-one of the Original "B-Boy" Break Dancers in the Bronx and Harlem at the very start of the Hip Hop Era in the early 1970's. With his unique break dance style, Douglas was named "Dancin' Doug" by "Kool Herc", the Original Godfather of Hip-Hop.

Douglas eventually became a Special Agent/Law Enforcement Officer with the U.S. Federal Government's Office of Labor Racketeering (OLR) in New York. He moved up to become Special Agent-in-Charge and Regional Inspector General of the Philadelphia and Atlanta Regions. He retired after 25 years of service.
