It looks like a suspicious stats issue. Since September 2015 my track https://soundcloud.com/mateuszmorawski/para-normal-activity has been receiving 6 downloads from unknown user from Netherlands each Sunday and Monday.

Hi Mateusz,

Thanks for reaching out. We've looked into this for you, and it looks like the majority of downloads is coming from http://starfrosch.com/. It looks like it is a page that collects tracks with a create commons tag that have downloads enabled. We cannot say in how far the downloads are automised (which is something you could think given how regular the downloads are). The site is being looked into by our Trust & Safety team. If you'd rather not see your tracks up on that page, you could edit your tracks and choose for them to not be available through the API.

I hope this helps to shed some light on where the downloads are coming from.

Cheers
Mathis
Thanks for successful investigation. I've found my track on starfrosh.com 🙂
