How to get that "scratchy/screamy" bass sound? [link to song in thread]

    So, recently I have been getting into the band Death From Above and even got a big muff to try and get a similar sound (I know his distortion is all amp distortion though).
    In the song "Romantic Rights" there is something different right around the 1:42 mark. He suddenly gets this really scratchy or screamy sound when playing the riff, that even kind of builds up. I really wanna know how to get that sound, is it a pedal? Or a playing technique? He doesn't seem to change his playing style at all when I look at live videos...
    (starting @ 1:42)
