Pops and clicks being added into song once uploaded to soundcloud

Hey everyone, like the title says, have any of you experienced audio distortion when you uploaded your track onto soundcloud?
I've uploaded the track onto soundcloud, (https://soundcloud.com/room_208/welcome-home-6/s-aDw2E) and onto clip (https://clyp.it/zb1avh2w?token=aad69aacaf69e1cc9bbc2ba755cb68e6), and in the soundcloud version there are some very audible clicks when the bass swells. But on clyp, and band camp and on the regular audio file, there aren't any clicks.
Any ideas as to why this might be happening? Thanks!

yes, indeed, the same here... 😞 any ideas? anybody? thanks
I'm having the same issue. My audio track sound fine played off my computer but after uploading there are some clips pops and artifacts. I have no clue why this is happening.......but I can say......it does this with seemingly everything I've uploaded.
The clicks and pops is due to the server compressing the wave file. If you download the file once uploaded, it will all be distorted
@DebayzeeI am having this same issue and it has yet to be resolved. Any luck fixing it?

Hi there,

Please see here for more info. https://soundcloudcommunity.com/company-announcements-230058/about-the-audio-quality-of-your-uploads-7395842

Furthermore, our engineers are investigating if there might be an issue with the codec on our backend at the moment.
