It is flamenco, and the guy that probably uses it more than anyone is Abraham Laboriel. He was actually a flamenco guitarist until an accident damaged his right hand.

There are many others who use the style infrequently - Stanley Clarke certainly comes to mind. It's difficult to find a musical situation to make use of the technique on a bass, however. While that's strictly a personal opinion, I say it to encourage other techniques that apply more directly to the instrument (i.e. two/three fingers with the thumb anchored on the back pickup or perhaps the palm-mute which works wonders on ballads and slinky kind of things where an upright-like tone fits the bill.)

Anyway, sorry for the long post - good luck to you!

Jerry
