I just wrote a post dealing with playing fast tempos, tongue positions, and articulation. It should be helpful beyond just up tempo stuff.

Its more about your fingers & air, at very fast tempos, no tongue or just in a few spots for "color" or accent. Very few.
Sometimes you might think, on some records, that guys are tonguing more than they really are. You can do alot with your fingers, the way you hit the keys, to simulate "articulation". If you focus on tonguing, its the real sure-fire way of remaining "earth-bound"
