Sascha Dikiciyan, known professionally as Sonic Mayhem, is a German game musician, producer and professional sound designer of Armenian origin, who has produced the soundtrack for Quake II, Tomorrow Never Dies and Hellgate: London, as well as approximately half of the soundtrack for Quake III Arena and all the weapon sound effects for Unreal Tournament. Dikiciyan has also produced independent music albums.

Dikiciyan's style is primarily a very driving and forceful form of aggro-industrial, with an emphasis on repeated musical phrases (though this is less pronounced in his non-soundtrack work). Currently Sascha collaborates with Cris Velasco who is responsible for orchestral moods in their music.

Dikiciyan is also known under the name "Toksin", producing dance remixes for the likes of BT and Celldweller and many others.

Dikiciyan's work came to prominence when he sent a copy of his first CD Methods of Destruction, an alternate Quake soundtrack, to id Software in 1996. As a result, John Romero asked him personally to score the soundtrack for Quake II.
