Problems adding public tracks on plug.dj

Hi Soundcloud staff,

I already asked this question on plug.dj's support forum and they said I should contact you about it as it was a Soundcloud limitation.

There's a couple of songs I would like to add to some playlists on plug.dj and the songs are on here. They are listed publicly and they are embeddable on Wordpress and other sites, and are not offensive content and don't trigger plug's offensive content filter that they have in place, but for some reason, when pasting the song URL or searching for the song in the search and having Soundcloud selected, the songs all fail to come up in the search results.

Here are a couple URL's:
https://soundcloud.com/nikkinakkinoodles/among-the-echoes-freak-nikki-noodles-remix
https://soundcloud.com/roniitmusic/roniit-runaway

Hi dj-nihil,

Thanks for posting. Likely, the original uploaders have decided they don't want for this track to be played outside of SoundCloud, by use of a third party app that uses the public SoundCloud API to pull this data. This can be set in each track's edit mode.

Sorry, this probably isn't the answer you were hoping for, but I hope it helps to shed some light on this.

Merry Christmas to you, and all the best,
Mathis
Ah right on then. At least there is a logical reason for it. Disappointed, but thanks for replying and letting me know. It is appreciated.
