SoundCloud group reposting script

SoundCloud has gone and killed the groups feature completely. Their suggested replacement is to create a profile and repost tracks to it. I hope you weren’t too attached to the submission functionality and ability to run an unmoderated group, because that’s gone.

Populate the variables at the top of the script with:

  • Your app client ID

  • Your username
