I run a music website called EDM Hunters. I'm noticing that any plays happening over the SoundCloud API aren't being reflected on the track on SoundCloud. This issue has just started happening over the past few days.
Any plays happening directly on SoundCloud are being reflected immediately, it's just the API that doesn't seem to be working right now.
If you'd like to test this with a song you can see this track which is featured on the home page in the 2nd section (Top Trending EDM Songs) in the 6th spot right now.
Any idea if this is an issue with caching or something else?

Glad to hear this is now working again indeed. We had reached out to our engineers after seeing multiple users reporting this issue and they confirmed that this was for API-streams in particular. My sincere apologies about the inconvenience this might have caused, and thank you for reporting and for hanging in there.
