Don't see any reason why this is tuned half a step. Good tab though.

It's because there are 4 natural harmonics in middle-eight part. You can't get them on standard tuned bass because they will sound different.

You can play this in standard tuning, just play harmonics like
this:
Gb|--------|
Db|999-----|
Ab|----9~--|
Eb|--------|
