I'll use both double-thumb and thump and pluck technique to create a hypnotic bassline at this accelerated tempo. It's important to keep from thinking "this is fast", as it can make you tighten up and/or rush the tempo and feel. You need to relax no matter what the tempo, and lock with the beat. Like the others, BPM is a huge element in how you create your bassline.
