I just started learning about music theory. i was studying a random edm track and figured out that the scale was Bb major. As the "A" triad in Bb scale is a diminished chord it didnt sound right in the progression. I changed it to Am and it sounded exactly the same as used in the track.. is this something related to using modes that ables him to change the A from diminished to minor or its just a matter of what sounds good to the ear .. Thanks.

I'm a beginner myself, but it seems like this was a Bb Lydian mode that produces:

Bb D F, Bb Major
C E G, C Major
D F A, D Minor
E G B, E Minor
F A C, F Major
G B D, G Major
A C E, A Minor

The "step pattern" for Bb Lydian is W W W H W W H.
