There was a problem communicating with The Hype Machine!

Hi guys,

I've been having this issue for a little while now. Whenever I try to browse the Blogs by Genre Tab on the Hype Machine app, I get the red bar right under the banner with the message "There was a problem communicating with the Hype Machine!"

I have tried:
- Remove and re-add the Hype Machine from favorites,

- Uninstall and re-install Spotify as a whole,

- Use a different login than my usual one.

Also,
- I have Spotify Premium,
- I don't use my Facebook Login. I signed up with this account in 2009 when there was no FB integration.
- I was able to use the Hype Machine App about 3-4 months ago, before I purchased the premium, but those two could be totally unrelated.

Any help?

Do you still get this if you temporarily disable any firewalls/security apps? Does it work from their site?

I finally figured it out.  I have to use a proxy to connect to spotify from my network, and for some reason it doesn't allow connections to other apps, such as LastFM or Pitchfork. When I switch to the guest network and remove my proxy the connection to these apps are established once again.

Thanks for the helps.

Glad you got it sorted 🙂
