Apparently the SoundCloud dev's solution to this problem was to update the notification every 500ms when playing, no matter if the track is still the same or not. This is not only a waste of battery power and an error source for other apps that might listen to notification changes (e.g. accessibility tools), but also not wise to do. Please find a proper fix for this, SoundCloud devs!
