Why am I hitting the max number of API requests?

I'm working on building an audio player that uses the SoundCloud API. I'm working locally and for a few days now, after working for a couple hours each day, I get an error saying:

`rate_limit: {bucket: "by-client", max_nr_of_requests: 15000, time_window: "PT24H", name: "plays"},…}`

Which I'm reading as: "your API key has used 15,000 play requests in 24 hours." This should definitely not be the case—I have been refreshing fairly often during development to check the progress of my work, but that's maybe a max of 50 times today. Any idea how I could find out where all those requests are coming from?
