Here for the gear
pumpy compression

hi everyone, I am currently mixing a fast song and I am wondering how can I compress the vocal so that it sounds "pumpy" like that in
Wings - Glee Cast [HD FULL STUDIO] - YouTube (start from 00:25)

my just sounds quite a bit too smooth and lacks power

I think compression is the key to such sound, am I right and how to do it? Thank yuo a lot!!!

High ratio, pretty fast release, timed to the beat of the song--pretty classic dance music sound.

Some comps pump better than others, but if you want a noticeable effect, going big will usually get you there.

Yep.
...Also, a slow to moderate attack time (slower than you might think at first blush).
