What kind of effects are being used on these Live Travis Scott Drums?

I can hear a delay in the beginning of the first track (no idea what kind though) and the drums seem a little wide.

First one was mixed by Noah Goldstein and the other two Mike Dean. Simple panning doesnt get me wide drums like that I'm just wondering what steps I can take to get exactly what he's getting stereo image wise with the drums. Perhaps a vitalizer is being used?

When you talk about making a nice stereo image for drums or your mix, panning is not what gets you there. You do not want a 2D mix, you want a 3D mix and to get a 3D mix, you need to place instruments in the front hard left, back hard right, front center, back center, 50% left middle, 50% right middle, 80% back left, 80% back right and so on.

To do that, you need to employ:
1.) A series of short delays (reverbs)
2.) Mid and Side EQ edits (not just stereo cut and boost)
3.) Panning techniques
4.) Some imaging effects.

Using all those tools listed above can get you to have a 3D mix.

Yes - most likely a vitalizer. Mike and Noah, ... classic.
