I once mixed a tune that had two bass lines.

The 'regular' bass- a repetitive groove was mixed more or less normally and the 'melody' bass (for want of a better term) I put a lot of reverb on!

I made the mix very very dry so the only thing that had reverb in the whole mix was that second bass and it worked out pretty well. Normally, bass is the last thing I would put reverb on.

In my case I used a short, tight verb so it wouldn't get swimmy - but it separated the two lines quite nicely because one of them had it and the other did not.
