A good example is this: youtube.com/watch?v=F_zpP9BgOhA notice (when the main tune is in flow) the kick drum lowers the volume of the synth but does not affect the vocals. A few bars later the compression is then applied to the vocals which you can hear instantly.

No generally it is applied to the channel that wish to dip using another channel as the input for the compressor. The compressor on the master bus can produce this effect but it is not generally used for this effect as it affects ALL the instrument parts. Generally the compressor on the master bus is used to 'glue' the track together i.e. lower the volume of the 'louder' parts and increase the volume of the 'quieter' parts (at the expense of dynamics of course).

BTW, it is not usually a technique applied to the whole mix (i.e. all the channels), it is usually done on parts of the mix (i.e. specific channels). A compressor is however usually added at the end on the master channel but not for this effect.
