If you're recording a live band you get more of that interaction by default so the trick is not to kill it in post with compression, to take something where the band did that and you removed it all by making everything "level" all the time. Otoh, overdubbed pop tracks kinda end up differently so you more often have to inject some of that in post.

The other part of it in post is automating reverbs along with the volume to move things forward or backward in the mix in real time. I mean, "louder" is just louder while louder and maybe dryer is "more forward".
