Soundcloud advises its users to try to avoid reporting other accounts as much as possible. It asks them to simply try to ignore the offending account, and to use the Block tool to keep the person with that account from interacting with you. However, it does acknowledge that there are some circumstances in which an account needs to be reported.
Spam is a frequent problem on Soundcloud, just as on any other online platform. To report a spam account, follow these instructions:
Alternately, you can try to delete the spam comment. You will be given the option of reporting the account for spam then.
If you need to report abuse or harassment, you will need to file a ticket in the Help Center. When you do, you should provide the URL of the account you are reporting, your URL, links to the content you believe is abusive, harassing or demonstrating impersonation, and a short explanation of the situation.
Soundcloud does not allow minors on the platform. To report one, file a ticket in the Help Center. Include the URL of the minor's account and an explanation of how you know the minor.

Have the display name of the deceased person, a contact email address for you, a copy of the death certificate and a copy of your photo ID available. If possible, also include an obituary.
