Soundcloud Quality Issue

I've been uploading on Soundcloud for years now (using the same computer to produce) and everything that I uploaded has had terrible sound quality no matter what my sample rate, KPBS, file format etc. The problem sounds like it's low sample rate but I have set everything to the highest quality. I haven't heard any other tracks on Soundcloud have the issue anywhere close to as bad as I have it. Mixing and Mastering might be bad but the issue stays no matter what I change musically. It sounds fine on any other platform (YouTube, Spotify) but Soundcloud for some reason makes only my tracks sound shitty. I'm not using an audio interface but I'm not sure if that would be the problem or not, I use a 32 bit cheap hp laptop so that could be it as well, but on my Macbook at 44.1k it seems to still sound the same on Soundcloud. I was just wondering what it could be and how I could fix it because it's starting to hold me back.

Here's a link to a track where it sounds especially bad in the drop and hi hats
