Hey brotha man, so I'm pretty sure the squelchy zipperness you're referring to is actually not a bass (although with some smart synthesizing, i.e. lowering the octave and layering a sub underneath, it could easily be bass material!) but a saw or square wave with a pitch envelope and automated attack/decay/sustain/ and release. Add some cool fx like saturation, reverb, time delay, and arpeggiation and you've got yourself some juicy zipps! I just recently learned how to make this sound from a mad zach youtube tutorial. Search youtube for mad zach laz(s?)ers and there's a great ableton tutorial! Peace and happy sound designing!
