Jackmaster has blasted misogyny within the music industry in a series of angry tweets.
Speaking out last night (Sunday 5th February), the Scottish DJ said "the things that I heard said about females in the industry tonight were fucking not acceptable."
"It is way waaay too easy to be ignorant to the fact as a male DJ in a privileged position," he continued, before apologising for his "prior ignorance and silence on the subject."

UPDATE: We are live blogging updates following the reported shootings at The BPM Festival.
The BPM Festival in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico has been hit by tragedy as multiple people have been reported dead and many more injured after shots were fired during the Elrow closing party at Blue Parrot in the early hours of this morning (Monday 16th January).
It’s Tuesday night in early October 2005 and Colin McBean is lying dead on an operating table at Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead, London.
Just under an hour ago, he felt the first murmurings of a massive heart attack whilst getting in bed. After being raced to hospital and rushed through triage, over the past few minutes his body has begun to shutdown entirely.
First his speech went, then his hearing, before he was deemed immobile, meaning prior to his heart stopping he had only been able to watch as the medical team frantically tried to save his life.
