Spotify don't use LUFS (yet), their measurement is based on ReplayGain (-18), then they add 3.6. So if you are hitting -14 Spotify will turn you down a little.

FWIW, I mix my own stuff to about -16 int, and master it to -12 int, between -9 to -10 max short, and -1 peak (true peak), because it sounds good to me.

Gain duties are shared between a clipper (SIR) and a limiter (Barricade) to avoid overworking the limiter.
