My post mix plays spiked from 108 to 620 or so in about 20 mins yesterday evening. It's important for me to know how this happened because its a mix I have submitted for a festival competition and the organizer finds this spike strange, as do I.
Is there a way to find out how those plays came by? I am hoping it was some big guy who posted my mix somewhere and I got a lot of a ton of sudden plays because I haven't used any paid service to get those plays. And I don't think anyone would pay to get me plays either. I have a free soundcloud account so I don't get much stats in there.
I did post it on https://hypeddit.com
and I have been posting it around. Any idea how I can find out? I tried emailing soundcloud at firstname.lastname@example.org but the email address doesn't work, and I can't find out a way to contact them.
