Jackmaster calls out misogyny in the music industry following an incident in Bali

While in Bali where he played for Night Moves at the Potato Head Beach Club last Friday night, Jackmaster took to Twitter to call 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.

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

Jackmaster makes no mention of the people or places surrounding the incident, saying on Twitter because "it's a v sensitive subject for the person they were talking about." He also added that he didn't want the incident to turn into a witch hunt.

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