Jackmaster has called out misogyny in the music industry.

The DJ took to Twitter on Sunday afternoon to say: "To hear the things that I heard said about females in the industry tonight were fucking not acceptable."

"It's what's said and enforced [by] powerful males behind the scenes that is the problem," he continued.

The DJ is currently in Bali, where he played for Night Moves at the Potato Head Beach Club on Friday night.

Fellow artists The Black Madonna, Scuba and Josey Rebelle have praised Jackmaster for speaking out publicly.

Björk also used social media to call out sexism in the industry in December.
