more and more often I see "Curvepusher" signature in the runouts of the records that stand-out in terms of balance between loudness and dynamics, punchyness of the low end, and mid-high clarity. I think the studio does not really get the credit they deserve. They've got some good ears in there and definitely push the lacquer layer to its limits.
