Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson is also a practiced spin doctor? Believe me, you’re not the only one who was surprised.

Following on the heels of her Oscar win for Best Actress this year, word has spread that Brie is not only a beautiful woman and accomplished actress, but has also dabbled in DJing for big parties all around the country.

Larson actually has a full decade of music experience under her belt. In 2014 she released her first single, “She Said,” that made it to the top 100 best-selling CD singles in the country. The album, Finally Out Of P.E., was released the following year and sold 3,500 copies in the U.S.

Brie has a few spinning tips that she would like to share for anyone aspiring to DJ for a crowd, like “always bring more records than you need”, and “maybe don’t play, like 60’s Beatle’s covers in German at a Coachella party.”

Check out the full video for her advice, and if you haven’t already, go watch her earn that Oscar in the heartbreakingly beautiful film Room.
